John F. Moore
Birth: Sep. 6, 1829
Weakley County
Tennessee, USA
Death: May 29, 1906
Kerr County
Texas, USA

Born September 6, 1829 in Weakley County, Tennessee, John F Moore was the son of James and Jane Moore. Married to Sarah Ann Ward around 1850, the family made the long journey from Tennessee to Texas. The early pioneers settled near Center Point, on the banks of the Guadalupe, the family home still standing proud. A farmer, John served during the Civil War, enlisting in the 3rd Battalion Cavalry Regiment.
John and Sarah were parents to known children, daughters; Susan, Willie and Annie and sons; Frank, James, George, Gabe, Jack and Thomas. Four of their sons served with the Texas Rangers, including James, who died in the line of duty of gunshot wounds in Sabine County in 1887. That same year Sarah passed away leaving John to care the their younger children. John continued to live at the family homestead until his death on May 29, 1906, at the age of 76.
John was a charter member, 5 January 1875, of Rising Star Masonic Lodge No 429, AF, AM, Center Point, Texas.
