Elizabeth B. Moore ~ Quaker Minister

The Obituary of
Elizabeth B. Moore
9th mo. 30th, 1849 ~ 4th mo. 17th, 1913

Elizabeth B. Moore, born 9th mo. 30th 1849, died 4th mo. 17th, 1913, aged 63 years, 5 months and 18 days. She was born at the home of her grandfather, David Brown, now owned and resided upon by S. Ella Michener and family.

This David Brown, when twenty years of age came from New Jersey with his parents, Asher and Mary (Ward) Brown, with eight brothers and sisters and settled on this farm in 1804.

When Elizabeth was but 12 days old her mother, Sarah (Brown) Moore passsed to the higher life, so that she never realized the impress and devotion of a loving mother.

In 1852 her father, Samuel B. Moore, remarried and moved to the west. Left as she was in the care of her grandparents and a maiden aunt, Elizabeth W(ilkins). Brown, she grew to womanhood uner the atmosphere of consistent Friends, who faithfully taught her the principles of love to God, Justice and right living toward her fellow beings. Thus when at the age of 39 years, she in turn was qualified to fiathfully devote her Christian fidelity to her beloved aunt, and repay her in part, at least, by nursing her through a protracted illness.

After the year 1883, Elizabeth B. Moore was left without any relatives in this place nearer than first cousin, but not without many devoted friends in and about Waynesville, Ohio, as well as among her religious associates in other parts of Ohio in and in Indiana. So much was she beloved by many that her willing service was often sought in time of sickness and bereavement. Much of her life was given to the care of the afflicted whom she tired to comfort in their declining years. Having never married she was more at liberty to bestow her kindness, helpfulness and devotion to her friends.

Her school education was obtained in the Waynesville village schools, and partly in a private school, taught in the little brick house on the Friend's ground, wherein she afterword taught for a short time. She was a faithful worshiper at the religious services of her life long society, in which she held many offices of trust and responsibility, being the treasurer of Miami Monthly Meeting, and one of its Elders at aathe time of her death.

She was an ardent temperance worker, giving her time and faithful service to the local Women's Christian Temperance Union, which organization, during her last illness sent her a beautiful floral spray as a slight token of regard and sympathy.

She was one of the prime movers and was devoted to the welfare of the Friends Boarding Home , having been of its Trustees from the beginning. Thus was her life given to the service of others. "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these , my brethren, ye have done it unto me."
In this Home she spent the last nine weeks of her earthly pilgrimage, being comforted by her friends until the language came, "It is enough, come up higher."
