Caroline Cheek Moore
Mrs. Caroline Moore of Equality
To Observe her 90th Birthday Sunday
Mrs. Caroline Moore, Equality's oldest citizen, will be 90 years of age Monday, Aug. 13 but her birthday will be formally observed Sunday when her sons, their families and other relatives and friends will call to pay their respects to the elderly lady.
Mrs. Moore is a lifelong resident of the Gallatin county area and has lived in Equality since the early 1920's.
Spry for her age, Mrs. Moore lives alone during the summer months, doing her own housework and cooking and visiting with her neighbors. She states she prefers to live in her own home and have her family come visit her, but during the winter months she visits with her three sons who live in this section.
She has four sons, Mora Moore, RFD, Equality, a school teacher in Gallatin County; Howard Moore, Harrisburg miner and grocery store owner; Norman Moore, Principal of the Carbondale Junior high School, and Elmer Moore, who lives in Jonesboro, Tenn.
Another son, Homer, died several years ago and her husband, Logan Moore, died in 1942.
There are seven grandchildren---Vernon Moore, serving with the U.S. Army, stationed at camp Crowder, MO; Russell Moore, East Alton; Leo Moore, Evansville, Ind; Ensign Robet W. Moore, at the U.S. Navy Station, Quonset Point, RI; Loveta Richardson, Detroit; Vivian Bennett, Harrisburg, and Jack Moore, Alton. Also there are eight great-grandchildren.
Mrs. Moore is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Cheek and was orphaned at the early age of five. Most of her childhood was spent in and near Karbers Ridge.
