James Duncan Moorman, Garland News 30 Dec 1932

Word was brought to friends in Garland Wednesday of the passing of an admirable past associate of local doctors, and thus followed on the wings of death another beloved veteran family physician who was held in high esteem by many of the community who remember his practice in this section.

Dr. J. D. Moorman, formerly of Pleasant Valley, then of Garland, who later removed to New Mexico for a number of years and then returned to a farm near Denton, died Tuesday night at 7:30 at the home of his daughter Miss Helen 3505 Lindenwood, Dallas.

Dr. Moorman had been in lingering illness at the Dallas address for a number of weeks, having been removed there from his farm when his health caused him to be bed-ridden. He had not practiced medicine since returning from the New Mexico address, the state of his health forbidding such regulated practice as he had followed for year after year in different localities.

The doctor was 75 years of age last May. His remains rest in the Ed C. Smith funeral home at Dallas, awaiting the arrival of his elder son, Tom, from Chicago.

A member of the family announced by phone Thursday morning that Tom would arrive Thursday noon. Definite arrangements have been made for funeral services to be held at the Ed C. Smith funeral home at Dallas Friday morning at 10 o'clock. Following the funeral the body will be brought through Garland and on to Pleasant Valley Cemetery. This will make the final service at the grave around 11:30 a. m. today (Friday).

A host of relatives and friends in and adjacent to Garland will mourn the passing of this respected practitioner of other days, but yet will thank providence that the suffering through which his last days were directed has terminated with the final call beyond the ken of earthly sojourn.

Surviving besides his wife, Mrs. Belle Moorman, are Tom of Chicago, Leslie of Denton, McClain of Dallas, and five daughters, Miss Helen, Miss Willa, Miss Janice, Mrs. C. E. Wright and Mrs. L. C. Gray, all of Dallas.

Requiescat. That, truly, is the prayer for the repose of his person, from the lips of those who knew him.

Madison Berryman Moorman, The Garland News 3 Jan 1913

M. B. Moorman died at the home of his son, Dr. J. D. Moorman, of Pleasant Valley, Dec. 25, 1912. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. W. A. Pritchett, of the Wylie circuit.

Deceased was born Aug. 3, 1824, and at the time of death the length of earthly sojourn numbered 88 years, 4 months and 22 days. In 1854, at Shelbyville, Tenn., he married Miss Mary Helen Cannon, who died in 1863. From this union children were left--J. D. Moorman, of Pleasant Valley, and Mrs. R. M. Parks, of Reno, Nev. In 1866, at Nashville, Tenn., Mr. Moorman married Miss Anna Ewing, who died in 1872, leaving one child-- Mrs. H. L. Allen, of Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Mr. Moorman led an active business life during his years of usefulness. He joined the Methodist Episcopal church in youth and at all times lived in accord with its teachings. He was also a member of the Masonic fraternity. A true friend, an affectionate husband, a devoted father has passed to his reward. May the Great Physician, who understands every sorrow, minister unto the bereaved family.
