Thomas Lorenzo Moore
From the 1889 Goodspeed History
          Thomas Lorenzo Moore was born in Quantico, Wicomico County, Maryland, on the 24th day of October, 1855. Leaving there in the spring of 1877, he entered the printing business at Charleston, Mo., and remained only one year, when he embarked in the mercantile business at Blodgett, Scott Co., Mo. Three years later, or in the fall of 1882, he sold out, and was appointed committee clerk in the State Senate during the General Assembly, and held the position until removing to Stoddard County, as manager and book-keeper of the Gregory Lumber Company. In 1884 he came to Cabool, and started the Record, which he now owns, and conducts in a manner reflecting credit upon himself, and proving of substantial benefit to the people of the community. In the summer of 1886 he was elected city alderman, and also city clerk. In 1888 he was elected as representative to the General Lodge of the I. O. O. F., of the State of Missouri, from the district comprising Wright, Howell, Shannon and Texas Counties. The same year he was also elected justice of the peace for Burdine Township, Texas County. He is a Democrat politically, the principles of which party are warmly sustained through the medium of his publication.
