John Francis Moore (1862–1927)

Mr. John Francis Moore, who died at the North Adelaide Private Hospital on Wednesday, at the age of 65 years, was a son of the late Mr. George Townsend Moore, an English barrister. He was educated in England, and came to Australia at the age of 21 years for his health. He joined the service of the National Bank of Australasia, Limited, and was associated with that institution for about 44 years. Mr. Moore held various positions of trust, including the management of the bank's branches at Kooringa and Mount Barker. He was held in the highest esteem by the bank's management and staff, and by the many customers with whom he came in contact. Mr. Moore was of a retiring disposition, and took no active part in public life. He devoted leisure hours to gardening and to the game of bowls. The deceased was married to the second daughter of the late Mr. Jefferson P. Stow, for many years a well-known Magistrate in South Australia. The family, besides the widow, comprise: — Mesdames Graham Young (Melbourne) and Evan Legatt (Tientsin, China), and Miss Barbara Moore (North Adelaide). There are also four grandchildren.
