Archelaus S. Moore, Esq., son of John, had a family of 10 children, named
Abigail, Archelaus S ., Jr. Lucinda, Abia, Climena, Hannah, Lydia, David,
Julia and Jefferson. The Honorable Joseph Moore, editor of the Manchester
Union, is the son of David, and was born in Loudon.
Archelaus S. Moore, Jr., married a daughter of Joseph Clifford, of Gilmanton,
New Hampshire. His son, Daniel L. Moore, resides upon the homestead of
his father, and has been married twice, having two children living. Mr.
Moore married, last, Mariana Sleeper, of Loudon, and has one child. He
has a large interest in the new cemetery at Loudon Ridge, in which he
has erected a family monument which is both costly and beautiful in appearance
and design. Mr. Moore has added many improvements to his farm and buildings,
and is a man of fine culture and taste. He devotes his time in attention
largely to farming, and is very successful. He is a prominent and respected
citizen, he possesses the characteristics which have made the Moore family
somewhat noted throughout each generation, one of which is an aptness
for action upon any sudden emergency, without any effort or apparent consideration.
