Henry B. Moore's 1896 obituary appeared in a Springfield newspaper as follows: MOORESVILLE--From Our Regal Correpondent--Died--At his home at this place April 29th.,Henry B. Moore, in the 69th year of his age. Deceased had been a life time resident of the county, and one of its most influntial citizens, much of his time and means being spent in public enterprises. A veteral of the Mexican war, his patiotism being one of the strongest marks of his character; a generous free-hearted man whose own interest were always secondary, who had the welfare of the peopl at heart. In his death the community sustained an irreparable loss; the county loses one of her most public spirited citizens; by his deeds he built a monument to his memory in the hearts of the people. Funeral services were conducted at the residence by Elder Couch, of the Christian Church, of which the deceased had been a life long member. F. C. M.
