Called to Final Reward Sunday evening Dec. 23- Had been large land owner- Was one of County’s prominent business men
It is with deep regret that we chronicle the death of one of the finest gentlemen and farmers of this section of Kentucky, when the Grim Reaper took from our midst Sunday evening, Dec. 23 at 10 o’clock William F. Moore of Walton. He was an exceptional fine man, kind, gentle, honest, with a gift of humor that endeared him to his many friends. If he ever had an enemy we never heard of it. While he was born in Boone county near South Fork neighborhood, he had lived in Gallatin and Grant counties, but being a good business man, whenever he was offered a profit on his purchase, he sold. At the time of his death he owned a farm in the Beaver Lick neighborhood. The cause of his death was senility and arto schlerosis, being in his 78th year, past, his birthday being in April.
His wife preceded him to the grave a number of years ago. He is survived by two daughters Miss Corrine Moore and Mrs. Jas. Houston, two sons, Harris and Robert, and one sister, Miss Linnie Moore, of Beaver Lick, and six grandchildren.
The funeral took place from his late home of Wednesday morning at 11 o’clock, Rev. J.M. Ervin, of Walton Christian church and Rev. Hampton Adams of the Frankfort Christian church, conducting the funeral services after which the remains were tenderly laid to rest in the Hance cemetery near south Fork. A large number of sorrowing relatives and friends were in attendance.
Funeral Directors of Chambers and Grubbs had charge of the arrangements.
