    Dr. Frank M. Sporer
    Here is a newspaper clipping of Dr Sporer, who was our family Dr. when we lived in Pilot Grove,
    in the 1940's. I'm sure he was loved by a lot of people in that area.

    And this from Ann Sporer Smith, July 2006

    "Daddy grew up in Sherman, went to AC, then to the University of Texas Medical School in Galveston.  He settled in Van Alstyne where he practiced medicine for a long, long time.  I grew up in VA and now live in Fort Smith, AR.

             His grandfather, the Rev John S. Moore, was pastor of the 1st Presbyterian Church in Sherman in the late 1800's, dying in 1903.  "They" say that even the saloons in town closed for his funeral.  "Preacher Moore" was also a early supporter of Austin College and one of the early trustees when it moved to Sherman.  There is a wonderful pastel painting of him hanging in the Historical Museum that William Collins has set up in Sherman."
