Biographical Sketch Thomas Anderson Moore was born October 31, 1838, in Scion, Harrison County, Ohio. He married Clara Pilcher (1845-1890) shortly before his enlistment in the Union army in the Civil War. During the war, Moore served with the 33rd Missouri Infantry (Union), and was seriously wounded on July 4, 1863, at Helena, Arkansas. Following the war, Moore worked as a carpenter in St. Louis. He died June 16, 1915, in Kirkwood, Missouri. Scope and Contents The Thomas Anderson Moore Papers consist primarily of correspondence documenting family affairs and the Civil War from 1862 to 1865. The Moore Family Correspondence Series consists primarily of correspondence between Thomas Moore and his wife Clara, and also includes correspondence from Thomas' father James. The letters regard family affairs and Thomas' service during the Civil War. The Moore Family Papers Series consists of various papers other than correspondence regarding the Moore and Pilcher families, including reminiscences and genealogies. It is unknown why the Bank of Edwardsville ledger (1819-1821), the Augustin Kennerly journal (1832-1834), and the Stagg & Brother ledger (1862-1870) were in the possession of Thomas Anderson Moore. The Barton Family Correspondence Series consists entirely of letters from various family members in Montgomery County, Missouri, to John M.
