Epitaph reads: "A precious one from us has gone, A voice we loved is stilled; A place is vacant in our hearts, Which never can be filled."

Bridgeport (CA) Chronicle-Union, 5/2/1891:

DEATHS. MOORE. – In Bodie, April 26th, Louisa, daughter of Frederick Moore, a native of California, aged 20 years, 1 month and 3 days.

Louisa Moore was one of the best known and most highly respected young ladies of Bodie. The funeral services were held in Odd Fellows’ Hall, on the afternoon of the 28th, under the auspices of the Order of Chosen Friends, of which Society she was a member. She was a good and loving daughter, the only child remaining at home with her aged parents. Much sympathy is felt and expressed for them in their sad bereavement. The funeral was largely attended, and the people of Bodie, among whom she had grown from childhood to womanhood, showed by their grief and tears, the love and affection in which she was held. That God in His mercy will help the father and mother to bear this bitter affliction, is the wish and prayer of their many friends.
