Sunday’s Obituary: Dr. J.J. Moorman of Salem, VA, 1885

Dr. John Jennings {J.J.} Moorman was a brother to my 4th great-grandmother, Sally Moorman Lee. He lived such an interesting life!! Here is one of his many obituaries, which were published throughout the country when he died. This one is from the Philadelphia Inquirer, dated 23 January 1885.
Obituary Notes.

Dr. J. J. Moorman, president of the Board of Trustees of Roanoke College for forty-five yeras, resident physician at the Greenbrier, White Sulphur Springs, and author of several works on the mineral springs of North America, died at his home in Salem, Va., yesterday, aged eighty-four years.

    My parents lived in Roanoke, VA. I’ll bet Dr. Moorman had a lively time being president of the Board of Trustees. After my career in college teaching, I know there are no discussions as nitpicking and frustrating as academic discussions!ReplyCancel
