Death of Mrs. C.S. Moore

Mrs. Catherine A. Moore, widow of C.S. Moore, died in Shenandoah, this county, at 11 p.m., on Saturday, aged 82 years and 14 days. Her health had been feeble for several years and she was very ill for six weeks preceeding her death. Mrs. Moore was a Miss McKinney of West Virginia, having been born at Shepherdstown. She is the last survivor of her family. During her married life she resided in Martinsburg and for a number of years afterwards and came to Shenandoah a year or two ago to reside with her son, J.H. Moore. The following children survive her: J. Howard Moore, of Shenandoah, VA., C.C. Moore of Hatboro, Pa., and Mrs. C.T. Quintard, of New York City. She also leaves nine grand children and three great grand children. After brief services at her late home by Rev. M.A. Ashby her remains were taken to Martinsburg and buried in Green Hill Cemetery at that place. All of her children were at the funeral. Mrs. Moore was a member of the Episcopal church and greatly esteemed by all who knew her.
