Eliza and Sarah Moore

Eliza and Sarah J. Moore were early teachers in the Sandusky local schools. According to FROM THE WIDOW'S WALK, by Helen Hansen and Virginia Steinemann, former pupils of the Moore sisters collected pennies so that a monument could be erected at Oakland Cemetery. In May of 1891, the monument to Eliza and Sarah Moore, in the form of two large books, was dedicated in memory of the teachers.

Eliza Moore was born on February 17, 1817, and died on March 30, 1883. Sarah J. Moore was born on April 27, 1822, and died March 13, 1890. They were the daughters of O.M. and Ruth Moore.

It really was so kind of all the school children to collect money in memory of their former teachers!
Thanks for stopping by!
