DR. J. R. MOORE was born in New Providence, Montgomery Co., Tenn., on November 10, 1840, and is a son of James M. and Mary (Lesembe) Moore. The father was a native of North Carolina and the mother of Tennessee. Both are still living in Montgomery County. Dr. Moore is the second of seven children. His education was received in the common schools of his native county, and subsequently at Stewart College. He then commenced reading medicine with Dr. W. T. McReynolds, of Clarksville, and remained with him three years. He next attended the University of Nashville, from which institution he graduated in the class of 1865. Taking up his chosen profession he began life, and settled in Oakwood, Montgomery County. He remained at that point until 1871, when he came to this county and settled at Crofton. At this point he remained about three years, and then came to this precinct. Here he has since resided, and now has a very lucrative practice. He is now acting as the county physician for the jail and poor-house. Dr. Moore was married in Montgomery County on March 31, 1866, to Miss Mary Gibbs, a daughter of Stephen and Malinda (Duncan) Gibbs, both natives of Tennessee. This union has resulted in seven children, of whom six are now living, viz.: John, Anne, Robert, Clay, James and Willie. Dr. Moore is a member of the Knights of Honor fraternity, and is identified with the Democratic party.
