William Moore
78 Years
Mr. Wm Moore, an old resident of Jones County, died last Monday morning at five o'clock, at the advanced age of 78 years. The disease to which he fell victim was heart disease. Mr. Moore has resided in this county for many years and has always been esteemed as an upright, peaceable citizen, and an excellent neighbor. His death is deeply lamented by his family and a large circle of friends and acquaintances. His funeral took place last Wednesday, and his body was laid to rest in the Monticello cemetery.

Note: This obit states William Moore was buried in Monticello, but I suspect he is the one buried in the Baptist Cemetery in Castle Grove. The date of death on the monument in Castle Grove is off by a year (his will is on file in Jones County and was made in the Spring of 1875).
