    MOORE, JOHN 1821-1886 ATKINSON (County,
    GA)

    JOHN MOORE, a son of JOHN and ELIZABETH (Margaret Elizabeth) JONES
    MOORE (Volume I), was born in 1821 in Emanuel County (GA). He moved with
    his parents to Lowndes County where he grew up. He was married in 1842
    to Miss BARBARA ROBERTS, daughter of GRAY S. ROBERTS (Volume I). She was
    born October 30, 1824, and died March 10, 1902. To Mr. and Mrs. Moore
    were born ten children.
    When Clinch County was created in 1850, Mr. Moore and his family were
    cut out of Lowndes County and into the new county. At that time they
    were living in the 10th Land District not far from the present town of
    Willacoochee (now in Atkinson County). In 1854, when Coffee County was
    formed, they were cut into it out of Clinch County. In 1868 he bough the
    Guest Millpond property now located in Clinch and Atkinson Counties. It
    had formerly been owned and operated by MILES J. GUEST (see Volume 1)
    until his death in 1865, and it was sold by the Guest administrators to
    FISHER GRIFFIN who having failed to finihs paying for the property, lost
    it at Sheriff's sale when it was bought by JOHN MOORE. Mr. Moore
    operated it several years and sold it to F. M. GUEST, and moved to a farm
    a mile west of Homerville (Clinch County, GA), which he bought from his
    son, ELIAS L. MOORE. This consisted of all of Land Lot 497, 7th
    District. He lived there until his death December 17, 1886. He and his
    wife were buried at Antioch Church near Kirkland, GA (the part of Coffee
    County which is now Atkinson County). The old residence where he died,
    still stands near Homerville, Clinch County, and is kept in a good state
    of repair by the owner.
    Mr. Moore became a Mason in 1859 in Cassia Lodge No. 224, then located
    at old Magnolia, Clinch County. He was suspended February 28, 1878. He
    was a member of the Clinch County Board of Education from 1882 until his
    death.
