We were informed yesterday that Mr. John T. Moore died on Friday night, at his residence near Dayton City, DeKalb county, of heart disease. He had been complaining for several days, but no serious results were anticipated by his family or friends until within a short time prior to his death.

Mr. Moore was a very old resident of Buchanan county, having resided nearly all his life in Bloomington township. Last spring he removed to his residence on DeKalb county. Honorable in all his dealings, warm-hearted and generous, he had many friends and no enemies. He leaves a wife and five children to mourn his loss.
