Byron Moore, the efficient Postmaster of Concord, was born in this city, October 30, 1844, son of James and Nancy (Barr) Moore, both of whom were natives of Goffstown, N.H. He comes of Scotch-Irish ancestry. His earliest progenitor emigrated to America in 1719, settling in Londonderry, N.H. He obtained his education in the public schools of Concord, being graduated from the high school at the age of nineteen years. Then he obtained employment in the stove foundry of William P. Ford & Co., with whom he remained for twenty years. During a part of the time he was associated in the firm of James Moore & Sons, successful hardware merchants of this city. In 1884 they sold out, and in the next year Mr. Moore was appointed money order clerk in the post-office, which position he held for about two years. In 1894 he was appointed Postmaster by President Cleveland, and he entered upon the duties of the office on June 16 of the same year. This position he has since filled most acceptably.
