Everette Edward 'E.E.' Moore, native of Calhoun County, Mississippi, expired at 6:48 p.m. in the Biloxi Hospital on Friday, May 2, 1947. He had been in failing health for almost a year.

Mr. Moore came to Biloxi in 1896. he was educated in Eupora and Slate Springs, Mississippi and had farmed before his arrival in the Queen City. Here he went into the laundry business as the Coast Steam Laundry on Porter Avenue with W.G. Dalzell, his brother-in-law.

E.E. Moore was elected alderman in the 3rd Ward in 1914 and 1915.

Under the aegis of Edward Everette Moore (1879-1947), Alderman, a cemetery comprising twenty acres was laid out in the Naval Reserve Park in early June. He was assisted by Aldermen John E. Lewis and John Eistetter, as well as W.F. Swan. By late August 1913, the City Council has accepted the $825 bid of H.E. Latimer & Son to harvest and clear the standing timber on the cemetery lot. At this time, Alderman Moore presented the City Council a plat for the new cemetery prepared by Fred Voak. Approximately 1500 gravesites, several small parks, and pine tree preservation areas were depicted on the cemetery plat.(The Daily Herald, June 6, 1913, p. 8 and August 27, 1913, p. 8)

Mr. Moore was the first Biloxi City employee to take retirement, who was not a policeman or fireman. He became the City Sanitary and Health Officer in December 1926, replacing Jake Tremmel (1876-1941) who had held the position for 4 1/2 years. E.E. Moore retired on April 23, 1947, shortly before his death on May 2, 1947.

E.E. Moore was survived by Julia Cousans Moore, his spouse; two daughters, Miss Ada M. Moore (1906-1991) and Miss Edna E. Moore (1901-1995), both Biloxi school teachers; five sisters: Mrs. W. Sadler and Mrs. John Latimer, Biloxi; Mrs. Edgar Benney, Cushing, Oklahoma; Mrs. E.M. Clark, New Orleans; and Miss Juanita Moore (1892-1965), New Orleans.
