Death: Dec. 19, 1877
District Of Columbia, USA

One of 10 children of John F Poore. He died at the age of 17 as a result of rabies. On a Sunday carriage ride Willie as he was known to his family, stopped to pet a puppy beside the road. Two months later he developed the symptoms of rabies while eating dinner. As the cold tea was being poured Willie suddenly fell into a seizure.
Willie Poore was buried from Holy Trinity Church. The local newspaper carried an account of the sad demise of this very popular Georgetown boy.
