Death of Veteran soldier
Patrick A. Moore, 61, died at his home on Conway Street Monday morning after an illness of less than two months duration. He sustained a shock of paralysis about six weeks ago and his condition was grave from that time on. On Saturday he suffered a second shock
Mr. Moore was a well known citizen and a veteran of the Civil War. In Brattleboro, VT, he learned the trade of harness maker. For 30 years he had been a resident of this town and the greater part of that time was in business. For several years he was in the employee of S. B. Payne, but retired about three years ago on account of ill health. When the call came for men to fight the Union came in 1860, Mr. Moore enlisted August 11 and just three years from that date he was discharged on account of disability: the loss of his left leg from a wound sustained at Cold Harbor, June 1, 1864. For a year afterwards he was confined in the military hospital at David Island, NY.
He leaves besides his wife, three daughters, Miss Mary Moore of Boston, Miss Louise Moore of this town, Mrs. J. M. Connors of New York City, and one son, George Moore of this town.
The funeral was held at Holy Trinity Church Wednesday morning, Rev. M. J. Carroll celebrating requiem high mass. Edwin E. Day Post, of which Mr. Moore was a member, attended in a body. The burial was in Calvary Cemetery.
The impressive GAR ritualistic service was rendered at the grave and at the close the veterans sang "There's a land that is fairer than day" in a very feeling manner, which plainly showed the band of comradeship which exists between old soldiers.
