Josiah Moore 1805-1899

Josiah was born in Hopewell Township, Cumberland County, New Jersey, son of Azaiah and Lydia (Dare) Moore. He married Nancy Ann Ewing in New Jersey. Known children include Charles, Elizabeth, Azariah, Josiah, Jr., Richard and Hannah; all born in New Jersey. They migrated from Newton, Camden County, New Jersey, to Davenport, Scott County, Iowa in the 1850's, then to Benton County, Iowa, where they remained many years farming with their son Richard. Son Josiah, Jr. had relocated to Red Willow County, NE, in the 1870's, where they went in their last years, as did Josiah's brother Enoch who is buried with him in Box Elder Cemetery.

In 1885 McCook "Josiah Moore has returned from Iowa , where he has been on a visit for the past three weeks. Mr. Abbott is here on a visit , and is stopping with his brother-in-law , Jos. Moore. "

Josiah More died at the home of his son, near Box Elder, Nebraska, Wednesday morning, February 22d, 1899. He was born in the state of New Jersey, Hopeful township, in the year ing over 93 years old at his death. Mr. More's grandfather and also his father's uncle, Azeriah More, were soldiers in the Revolutionary army. His brother Enoch More was a sea captain for more than forty years and transported the captured Jefferson Davis and his cabinet on his steamship "Clyde" when they were delivered to the authorities at Fortress Monroe. Mr. More was one of a family of twelve children. His father was well-to-do, so that a private tutor was employed to instruct the children in the home. A few years ago, Mr. More and wife moved to Red Willow county. Since the death of his wife he has lived with his son, Josiah More. The deceased was an upright, honest Christian man, respected by all. His death was quite sudden. He got up in the morning and dressed himself, but in a few hours he peacefully and quietly passed away. The funeral services were held in the Box Elder Methodist church, conducted by the Rev. E. J. Vivian. A very large congregation gathered to pay their last respects to the memory of this grand old citizen. His remains were laid to rest by the side of his wife in the beautiful cemetery at Box Elder. The bereaved family has the deep sympathy of all.

Was born in Canada, July 10, 1822, where he was engaged in farming till 1840, when he moved to Jefferson county, New York, where he continued farming for two years, and then returned to Canada, living there till 1853. In 1849 he commenced learning the blacksmith trade, at which he worked there till 1853, when he moved to La Porte, Indiana, where he lived two years and a half, working at his trade; he then moved to Erie, Illinois, working at his trade till 1867, when he moved to Belle Plaine, this State, running a blacksmith shop till 1874, when he came to this county, locating where he now lives.

Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 179,2 15, dated J one 27, 1876; application filed March 6, 1876. To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, AZARIAH MOORE, of Shellsburg, in the county of Benton and State of Iowa, have invcnted certain Improvements in Brick for Walling Wells, of which the following is a specification I have found that the walls of wells need not necessarily be very thick, because, from the form in which they are laid, they are well calculated to offer great resistance to outside pressure. This is especially true if the brick therein are so constructed that theyvatford a bearing upon the whole surface of their ends, which would not, however, be the case with the brick as usually made, because, when laid in circles the size of the ordinary well, only the inner corners of the ends would meet; and hence my object in the present invention has been to devise a form of brick which, while it may be laid upon edge, and thus accomplish a saving in the number of bricks and amount of mortar required, will also obviate the difficulty just mentioned with regard to the ordinary form of brick.
