"Frank I. Moore"

FRANK I. MOORE, engaged in the grocery business at Brodhead, Green county, where he
carries a full line of everything usually found in a first-class establishment of the kind, including provisions and queensware, has, by strict attention to his business, and a very clear understanding of the requirements of his trade, built up a large and profitable patronage.
Mr. MOORE was born in Danville, Vt., March 21, 1855, and is a son of Isaac and Amelia
(SNOW) MOORE. His father was born in New Hampshire, and the birthplace of his mother is now lost to memory. Their children were: Amanda, wife of A. A. TEN EYCK, of the town of Decatur; Adin S., of Brodhead; Belle C., the widow of J. H. WHITE, of Aurora, Ill.; Ella M., of the same city; Frank I.; and Anna J., wife of E. L. WHITNEY, of Mendota, Ill. The father was a farmer, and came to Wisconsin in 1860, locating on a farm of 125 acres, to which he subsequently added about sixty acres. After the death of his wife, in 1894, at the age of seventy-four, he made his home with his daughter, until his own death in 1898, at the age of eighty-two. They were First-Day Adventists. He was justice of the peace in Vermont, and held various town of offices in his more active days. His father, John MOORE, was a native of Scotland, who came to this country, and settled in New Hampshire. He died in Vermont when old. He was a farmer, and had a large family. Adin SNOW, the father of Amelia (SNOW) MOORE, was the father of five children. He was of English descent, and was engaged in milling in New Hampshire, at the time of his death from an accident in the mill.
Frank I. MOORE was six years old when he came to Green county, Wis., with his parents. He
attended the district school and was a student in the State Normal, at Whitewater. He began for himself as a clerk in Brodhead, and was in the same store for eight years. For the last twelve years he has been engaged in the grocery business for himself, and in that time has come to the front as a capable businessman.
In May, 1877, Mr. MOORE was united in marriage with Miss Carrie M. CORTELYOU, a
daughter of Timothy T. and Ann (STILLWELL) CORTELYOU. Mr. and Mrs. MOORE have two children, F. Stillwell and Carrie Ella. The family are members of the Methodist church, where he serves as trustee and treasurer. Socially he belongs to the Modern Woodmen of America, and politically has always been a Democrat. The family reside in a pleasant home on South Center street.
