      (Townsend, m. Anna Renaudet), John', m. Jane Kerin).

      The mantle of the distinguished father fell appropriately upon the son, Samuel W. Moore, [Footnote: The W. was added to his name to distinguish him from another Dr. Samuel Moore in New York City.] and the honor and dignity of the family were preserved and transmitted. Dr. Moore was the typical physician, earnest, sympathetic, equal to emergency and having a genius for mechanics which was often used in surgical cases. He was successful in his practice and had the respect and love of his patients. After his wife's death he spent his leisure in modeling in clay and produced some very creditable busts of his wife and father. He lived in Warren Street, afterward at Broadway and Spring Streets. His portrait may be found in the New York Hospital. He was a vestryman of Grace Church.

      The annexed tribute to his memory by Dr. C. R. Oilman, of New York, shows the feelings of his professional brethren.

      The life of a practicing physician is very rarely one of startling adventures or striking events. His duties, though important as the value of life itself, are chiefly performed in the privacy of the sick-room ; and, of consequence, the manner in which he performs them is known only to the small circles of loving friends who gather around the bed of the sick or the dying.

      Such a life, it may seem, presents but a barren field to the biographer. Bid him chronicle the victories of the warriors, the triumphs of the statesman, and he will devote to the task all his most brilliant powers, and do it with pride and pleasure. But to trace the every-day life of one who has "pursued the noiseless tenor of his way" in that obscurity which necessarily and very properly shrouds most of the labors of the physician, whose path has been from sick bed to sick bed, and whose contests have been only with the great enemj', death -- this, to the ambitious biographer, may seem to be an ungrateful task. But it is not, or at least ought not to be, an ungenial labor, to speak of a life devoted to the service of humanity, spent in the unostentatious performance of varied and important duties. Especially should the task of tracing such a course be grateful when the duties of the man have been performed in the spirit of a Christian.

      Such a task I have imposed upon myself, in attempting to write a biographical sketch of the life and character of Samuel W. Moore, M.D., whose recent removal from among us, while it has plunged a bereaved family into deep affliction, has spread throughout a large circle of loving friends and strongly attached patients, a deep and abiding sorrow "that they shall see his face no more forever."

      Samuel W. Moore was born in New York City, 11th October, 1786, the son of Dr. William Moore, long one of our most highly esteemed and successful practitioners. From early childhood his constitution was frail, and the delicacy of his bodily organization was equalled by the gentleness of his temper and the kindhness of his feelings.

      Such an one might seem to be unfitted to bear the grave responsibilities and act amid the appalling dangers which so often beset the physician's path, but this I believe is not so ; and the success of Dr. Moore adds another to the list of those physicians whose lives prove that it is not so. The truth seems to be that a strong sense of moral duty will so nen,'e the heart and strengthen the hand, that the most acute sensibility will only make its possessor more eager to relieve those sufferings by which his compassion is so strongly excited. Dr. Moore received his early intellectual training from Mr. Samuel Rudd, and entered Columbia College at the age of sixteen j'ears, in 1802. His connection with Columbia College was probably rendered more pleasant and profitable by the fact that his uncle, Benjamin Moore, D.D., Bishop of New York, was then President of the institution. Several of his classmates still survive among us, and we noticed two of them among the sorrowing friends who assembled at his funeral. He graduated in regular course in 1806, and immediately commenced the study of medicine under the guidance of his father, attending lectures in the medical department of Columbia College, in which Dr. Wright Post then taught anatomy. Dr. Richard Bailey surgery, Dr. Hammersley theory and practice of physic, Dr. J. R. B. Rodgers midwifery, and Dr. David Hosack botany. From those distinguished teachers he received, in 1810, the degree of Doctor of Medicine, and immediately entered into full practice, taking a share of the large business of his father. This arrangement continued until 1824, when the elder Dr. Moore died, having practiced physic forty-four years. His son now took his place among the prominent physicians of New York, with a large circle of patients, and a still larger one of friends ; for such was the unaffected kindness of his heart, and such the graceful amenity of his manners, that few became his patients without remaining ever his attached friends. With his professional brethren his position was peculiarly pleasant. A thorough medical education, and a large measure of well-improved experience, gave to his opinions deserved weight, and insured him, as a physician, a strong hold on the confidence of physicians, while his conduct, on all occasions so perfectly upright, his manner so dignified yet so gentle, gave him as a man the highest place in their regard. To quarrel with such a man was simply impossible and to distrust him seemed not so much a wrong as a folly. Of him it can truly be said, that after a successful career of more than forty years, and that in times of many professional contests, he made many friends, and not one single enemy in his own profession. Oh, si sic omnesf In 1824 he was appointed one of the physicians of the New York Hospital. For this situation he had moral qualifications which are more important, and alas, more rare, than professional skill. His conscientiousness insured to the poorest and most degraded of his pauper patients a full measure of his attention, while his amiability and benevolence made him the friend of poor and rich alike. In 1828 he was compelled, by failing health, to retire from a position which he was so well fitted to adorn.

      In 1828, Dr. Moore was appointed Trustee of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, and continued, from that period to the end of his life, to take an earnest interest in the prosperity of that institution. At the time of his death he was the senior member of the board. In 1849, on the reappearance of the cholera. Dr. Moore, in conjunction with his friends, Dr. Joseph M. Smith and Dr. John B. Beck, was appointed medical counselors to the Committee of the Sanitary Board of Health. To the duties of this position, made more onerous by the fact that his associate. Dr. Beck, was soon, by the state of his health, disabled from taking his share of them, Dr. Moore devoted all his energies ; and the report published by the committee affords most satisfactory evidence of the ability and faithfulness with which this important public duty was performed. For several years, the health of Dr. Moore, never very robust, had been gradually declining, and he felt himself obliged to contract the sphere of his professional labor. Still he was unwilling entirely to give up the practice of his profession, and very many of his old friends were still more unwilling to be given up. In March last he met with an accident which, though not immediately followed by grave symptoms, caused, as afterwards appeared, efflusion of blood into the cavity of the arachnoid. He continued to visit a few friends, and his venerable form was still seen at church ; till in July paralysis very gradually supervened, and on the 26th of August, 1854, "Gently as an infant to his sleep, Went he to death "

      Dr. Moore married, in 1813, Emily, daughter of William Constable, Esq., by whom he had thirteen children, ten of whom yet survive to give unto God most "hearty thanks for the good example of him who, having finished his course in faith, doth now rest from his labors."

      [I have omitted resolutions by several entities.]

Susan Livingston, Harriet3, m. James Duane, settled in Franklin County, N. Y., Anna3, m. Hezekiah B. Pierrepont.] belonged to the Constable family which lived near Dublin, Ireland. They originally came from Yorkshire in England and bore the same arms as the Yorkshire family.

      Thomas Constable lived at Loggan in the Manor of Wingfield, County Wexford, Ireland. His great-grandson wrote that he was a descendant of one of the judges of King Charles I. In the list of the Long Parliament was Sir William Constable, Baronet (regicide [Footnote: Signed the death warrant.] instead of Benson, the jobber, and in preference to Deerlove '42, Knaresborough, a "recruiter," not an original member).

      Thomas Constable and his wife ____ ____ had a son William, born 1693, who married 1716, Elizabeth Owen, of a Welsh family.

      William Constable and Elizabeth Owen, his wife, had a son John1, born in Dublin, Ireland, the first to come to America. Remarried Jane Kerin, the daughter of William Kerin and his wife Jane Ewer, of Dublin. John Constable was Lieutenant and Surgeon in the Colonial Army in 1762-5. He died at Schenectady, N. Y. , in 1785, aged 75, and was buried at St. Paul's, New York City. John Constable1 and Elizabeth Owen had a son, William2.

      Emily Constable3 was the daughter of William Constable2 born in Dublin, January 1, 1751, who was Aide to General Lafayette, an honorary member of the Society of the Cincinnati, a partner of Gouverneur Morris and an intimate friend of Lafayette, Hamilton, Jay, and Washington. He was the principal owner of the "Macomb purchase." He died in New York in 1803 and was buried in St. Paul's churchyard. William Constable presented a fine portrait head of Washington by Stuart to General Hamilton ; a head of William Constable [Footnote: See Ogden Hoffman's Eulogy. Hough's History of Lewis County, 1852.], by Stuart, is at Constable Hall, N. Y. Amongst the treasures of the family are letters from Gov. Morris, Lafayette, and Robert Morris. He married, February 28, 1782, Anna White, daughter of Townsend White and his wife, Anna Renaudet (m. July 13, 1741), of Philadelphia, who was one of the Queens of Beauty at the Meschianza ball, May 18, 1778. She was a schoolmate and intimate friend of Martha Dandridge, afterward Martha Custis, and later the wife of Washington. A bracelet containing a miniature of Washington is still in existence which was presented by Martha Custis. Her sister Sarah married March 17, 1767, Moore Furman, of New Jersey, who was prominent in the Revolution and a friend of Washington. See Gershom Moore4. [11]

      580. Dr. William5, b. Jan. 17, 1754, m. Feb. 4, 1782, Jane Fish4 (Nathaniel3, m. Jane Berrien (Peter), Nathan2, Jonathan1), b. 1757; he d. April 22, 1824 (will). [618]

      . . .

      580. Dr. William Moore5 (Lieut. Samuel4, Benjamin3, Capt. Samuel2, Rev. John1) and Jane Fish4 (Nathaniel3, m. Jane Berrien (Peter), Nathan2, Jonathan1) .

      Dr. William Moore5 was a physician. "This ornament [Footnote: Thompson's History of Long Island.] of the profession and of Christianity, was born at Newtown, L. I., in 1754. He received the rudiments of a classical education under the tuition of his elder brother, afterwards Bishop Moore, and President of Columbia College. He attended the lectures on medicine delivered by Drs. Clossey and Samuel Bard.

      "In 1778 he went to London, and thence to Edinburgh, and in 1780 graduated Doctor of Medicine, when he delivered a dissertation on the Bile.

      "For more than forty years he continued unremittingly engaged in the arduous duties of an extensive practice, particularly in midwifery, estimating his number of cases at about three thousand. His medical papers may be found in the American Medical and Philosophical Register, the New York Medical Repository and the New York Medical and Physical Journal. For many years Dr. Moore was President of the Medical Society of the County of New York, and an upright and vigilant Trustee of the College of Physicians and Surgeons. On his death the college recorded their testimony of his pre-eminent worth. He was Trustee of Columbia College from 1790 until his death, and chairman in 1823.

      "Dr. John W. Francis, at that time Professor of Obstetrics in the college, in his lecture to the class, remarked of this estimable man, as follows : 'Before I conclude,' says he, 'permit me to pay my feeble tribute of homage and respect to the memory of the late Dr. Moore, recently called from among us by the fiat of Providence : a bright exemplar of the virtues and the important qualifications demanded of the practitioner in that department of the profession, the duties of which I have attempted to exhibit. I am persuaded that I do not allow feelings of personal friendship to prevail over the decisions of the severest scrutiny, when I assert that no member of our profession has exhibited in his life and conduct, a more beautiful example of the dignity and benignant lustre of the medical character.

      " 'Honored for many years with his friendship, and admitted to the privilege of his conversation, I was early taught to look upon him with a respect and veneration which all my subsequent acquaintance only served to strengthen and confirm. Thousands among us can testify to the mildness and urbanity of his manners, to his tender and watchful regard for the suffering patient and sympathizing attendants, to his warm-hearted benevolence of feeling, and devotedness to the good of all whom his eminent attainments, or the lesson of a pure and unspotted life could profit, to his strictness of moral principle and uniform devotion to the sacred obligations of religion.

      " 'It was but a few months ago that the governors of this institution were honored with his co-operation and enlightened by his counsels. How great their loss has been, can only be known to those who were acquainted with the liberality of his views, and his freedom from every mean and selfish bias.

      " 'Dr. Moore rose to his great eminence by the force of personal and professional merit. A liberal education had prepared him to commence with advantage his medical pursuits, and amid the toil and cares of his laborious career, he ever continued to recur with ardor and delight to those classical studies, in which he had been imbued in his youth. Seldom, indeed, has it happened that the two professions were adorned with such attainments and such private excellence, as were exhibited in the instances of Dr. Moore and his brother Benjamin, the late pious and venerable bishop of the church. While we cherish their worth, let the regret at our bereavement give place to a noble emulation of their pure virtue and active benevolence.'

      "That he was among the most eminent and useful men of which the annals of medicine can boast, is fully established by the disinterested observations of his able, learned and scientific contemporary, and his name adds one more to the already extended list of great and good men, in almost every department of useful knowledge which graces the history of Long Island."

      Dr. Moore was a vestryman of Trinity Church.

      The following extract from a letter from Miss Maria Theresa Moore, his granddaughter, gives a pleasant picture of family life : " Aug. 29, 1899. Thank you for the pleasure you've given me by that account of my grandfather (Dr. Wm. Moore). I remember the dear old gentleman coming in often, with his knee-breeches, and boots, with a little tassel on each, which we children always investigated, and our Christmas visit to him and grandmother, when each child received a present. This custom was carried on by my uncle, N. F. Moore, whilst in Columbia College, and after he left New York and lived with Uncle William at Garrison, he sent to each niece and god-child $10 in gold." Miss Moore, of Stamford, Conn., has a silver spoon marked W. M. T.--William and Jane Moore.

      Dr. William Moore5 in his will, dated August 21, 1810, probated April 17, 1824, ordered his executors to purchase half of the vault of his brother-in-law, Thomas Barrow ; leaves during her life to his wife, Jane, the property at the corner of Nassau and Liberty Streets, rented by Robert Hill ; to his son, Nathaniel F. Moore, his folio Bible and his miniature by Carbonora and his mother's, by Sharpless, his profile picture by Sharpless to his daughter, Maria Theresa.

      Jane Fish4 was the daughter of Nathaniel Fish3, of Newtown, and Jane Berrien, the daughter of Peter Berrien, who married Elizabeth Edsall (Peter Jansen (Cornells Jansen, m. Janet Stryker, Jan Stryker, m. 1652, Lambertgi Sanbenny)), the granddaughter of Nathan2 and ____ ____, the great-granddaughter of Jonathan1 and Mary ____.
