MRS. BETTIE MOORE

A Tribute of Love and Respect

Mrs. Bettie Moore departed this life 16 July 1933. She was a native Mississippian, well along in her 73rd year. Her father and mother W. A. (Bill) Humphrey and Didama Humphrye migrated to this section some ninety years ago and made Tippah and Prentiss Counties their home until the mother's death in 1883. Mr. Humphrye then moved to Texas and died in 1900.

At the age of sixteen, Mrs. Moore united with the Methodist Church at Carolina and remained a member there until 1903, when she moved her membership to Backland where she was a faithful member until God's messenger called her home.

She was twice married. Her first husband was John H. Michael To this union five children were born, four of whom survive. After the death of Mr. Michael she was married to C. M. Moore, who survives her, one daughter was born to them.

The funeral services were held at the Carolina Church with Br. James T. Gullett in charge. He was assisted by Bro. B. P. Fullilove and Bro. E. M. Sharp, both of Rienzi. At the conclusion of the services the body was carried to the cemetery at Jumpertown and laid to rest, with many beautiful flowers to mark and adorn her last resting place on earth.

She was a devoted wife, and mother and a kind and faithful friend, always ready to lend a helping hand to those in need. Her character was such that commanded love, respect and appreciation of her loved ones and those who knew her in every day walk of life. Her rare judgment, connected with a life of noble sentiments, bestowed upon her children that influence of mother love that leads to a beautiful life of usefulness and devotion to those Christian principles that dominated her career.

So may we live in such a way as to show our love and appreciation for the wonderful life that she exemplified, for the language of Edgar A. Quest: "Vain are all our tributes to her If in words alone they dwell we must live the praise due her There's no other way to tell, Gentle Mother that we love her." written by her Children

CAPTAIN R. J. MOORE

The people of Wheeler were shocked on hearing of the death of Capt. R. J. Moore, which sad event occurred while he and Mrs. Moore were on a visit to relatives in Tishomingo county. He died very suddenly with paralysis at the home of Mrs. Bell Furguson. He had been afflicted for several years with ashma and other troubles, but just a few hours before stricken he expressed himself as feeling better than usual. He was taken at the supper table and only lasted about twelve hours, talking but little.

Capt. Moore was born in Itawamba county, Miss., near Fulton, March 16, 1837. His parents moved from Itawamba county to Tishomingo county in 1844, and resided there until the breaking out of the Civil War, at which time he enlisted in the 26th Miss. Reg. in the Confederate Army in 1861 ;went directly to the front and was in the engagements of his command.

Capt. Moore was elected 2nd Lieutenant of his company at its organization, and in 1863 was promoted to the rank of Captain and filled this position ably and well until peace was declared.

He was the Battle of Ft. Donaldson, Baker's Creek, Siege of Petersburg and was wounded and captured at the last named engagement. He was taken to Johnson's Island prison, detained there about three months, and was captured again at Ft. Donaldson He was placed in the same prison and remained six months, being there at the final surrender. He was paroled in June, 1865, and then returned to his home in Tishomingo county where he engaged in farming.

He married in 1864 to Miss Nannie Gains, which happy union lasted nearly half a century.

Capt. Moore was elected county surveyor in 1888, which position he filled with honor, He made farming and milling his chief occupation during life and was quite successful in his chosen calling.

He was a member of the Masonic Fraternity and the Knights of Honor organization. He was a member of the Christian Church having obeyed the Gospel when young and lived true to the cause until he was called to his reward.

As a neighbor there was none better. He was public spcbrited and enterprising and extended a liberal hand to all laudable public enterprises.

He moved from the eastern part of the county to Wheeler about two years ago, where he lived happily the remainder of his life. He won many friends here, who will greatly miss him.

To Aunt Nannie, the grief stricken wife, and relatives we would say: "Weep not as those who have no hope." By and By there will be a glorious reunion on the other shore where parting will be no more.
