Biographical / Historical

Martha Jordan Moore (1843-1916) was the daughter of Rebecca and Amos Hosmar Jordan. She married Thomas H. Moore in 1869. Thomas Moore suffered from ill health and died in 1907. Martha also experienced poor health and difficult financial circumstances. At the age of sixty-six, finding it necessary to support herself, she sought work as a Universalist minister. She was licensed and ordained in June 1910, by the Ohio Convention in Plain City. She settled in Stryker and remained minister for the parish until shortly before her death in Lyons, March 25, 1916.
