  L. H. Moore, of the firm of Moore Bros. & Co., proprietors of the Astoria saw-mill and spoke-factory, is a native of Knox Co., Ky., where he was born in 1830. His father, J. L. Moore, was born in the same State, and had a liberal education, and for the greater portion of his life taught school, but also farmed to some extent. His wife was Leminah Kitchen, also a native Kentuckian. When our subject attained his fourth year his parents moved to Indiana and remained 2 years, when they came to Schuyler Co., Ill., near Rushville, where young Moore passed his early years, and in addition to farming acquired a knowledge of coopering. While there he was united in marriage with Miss O. J. Sellers, daughter of Thomas Sellers. Some years ago he came to Fulton Co. and purchased an interest in the saw-mill built by John Moore. This mill is quite a feature of Astoria, and a large and growing business is transacted.
