AbstractFile containing an obituary with photo for H.B. Moore, "well-known mortician and owner of the H.B. Moore funeral home, 1820 E. 18th St." Moore was a native of Ohio who came to Kansas City in 1901, shortly before which he established his funeral home on Independence Avenue. The establishment was moved to 1820 East 18th Street in 1920.
NotesLater [in the late 19th century] he [H.B. Moore] moved to Denver, Colo., and it was here that he became acquainted with C.A. Franklin [Chester Franklin], who, upon the death of his father, was the first Negro there to patronize a Negro mortician when the late A.T. Moore, brother of H.B., was the funeral director in charge.
