The subject of this sketch was born July 19, 1851 on his father’s ranch north east of the village of Pescadero. His father Alexander Moore was one of California’s earliest settlers, coming to California from Jackson County, Missouri, in 1847 and making the trip over the plains with ox teams, arriving at Johnson’s ranch on Bear river, October 2, 1847, where he remained until he removed to Santa Cruz, Nov. 15, 1847.
The early life of Moore was spent in farming and stock raising with such success that he has continued to follow this vocation.
On April 9, 1883 he was married to Hattie Huff. The couple have one son, James Alexander, who is now with his father on their ranch of 117 acres, on Pescadero creek.
Mr. Moore is a member of the Native Sons, and the Ancient Order of Foresters.
