Semi-Weekly Iowegian - July 1905
JAMES LARIMER MOORE
Death of Fourteen Year Old Boy Brings Sadness to Home
Well a week before, James Larimer Moore, aged 14 years, 23 days, died Sunday, July 23, at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln Moore, near Jerome, of peritonitis. He was taken sick on Monday, after getting chilled, and grew worse till it was seen he could not recover. Though stricken down at such a promising time of life, and so unexpectedly, he fully realized his condition and his last moments will ever linger in the memory of the bereaved family as a consolation to them, so brave and resigned was he. He had been a member of the Methodist Sunday school at Jerome, was a boy popular with school mates, and a comfort in the home. He leaves a sister and three brothers, Essie, Harry, Danny and Byron. The funeral was conducted by Rev. Geo. Blagg, of the M. E. church, Tuesday. Mr. and Mrs. John Larimer and Mrs. D. S. Larimer of Chillicothe, Ill., attended the funeral.
James Larimer Moore was born 30 June 1891 in Jerome, Appanoose County, Iowa, son of Lincoln Moore and Mary Larimer, and died at home on 23 July 1905. Burial was in the Jerome Cemetery.
