Mr. J.W. Moore Dies at Bishop

Mr. J.W. Moore, better known as Jack Moore, formerly of Winder, popular merchant, farmer and stock dealer until retiring a few years ago on account of bad health, died at the family residence below Bishop at 5:30 o’clock last Monday morning in his sixty-ninth year.

The funeral was held at Bishop Baptist church, of which he was a member, at 3:30 o’clock Tuesday afternoon, conducted by his pastor, Rev. E.D. Kelly, of Athens, interment following in the Watkinsville cemetery by the side of his wife who died about two years ago.

Surviving Mr. Moore are three sons, Mr. E.M. Moore and Mr. Hubert Moore of Bishop; Mr. L.L. Moore, Bradenton, Fla.; four daughters, Mrs. F.A. Gillen and Miss Odessa Moore, Bradenton, Fla.; Mrs. F.A. Durden, Atlanta; Mrs. J.L. King, Jr., Dublin; three brothers, Mr. S.E. Moore, Chamblee; Mr. W.R. Moore, Luxomni; Mr. E.T. Moore, Watkinsville; three sisters, Mrs. J.D. Hampton, Gatesville, N.C.; Mrs. Joseph McGiure, Luxomni; Mrs. Benson Freeman, Cleveland, and eight grandchildren.

Mr. Moore moved to Bishop from Winder about three years ago, where he was formerly engaged in merchandising, farming and stock dealing and it has been said that he has sold more mules in this section of the state than any other one man. His daughter, Miss Odessa Moore, was a graduate from the law department of the university.

We join with the hundreds of friends of the deceased in extending sincerest sympathy to all the bereaved ones.
