DENNIS "Carlton" MOORE
Source: Crawfordsville Daily Journal Aug 5, 1895
"This is the day that the old board of township trustees turned over their offices to the new board. The members of both boards were in town bright and early and the settlements progressed satisfactorily all the morning. There had been talk of Messrs Dunkle and Hampton attempting to hold on to their offices but the talk was groundless. They acted as gentlemen and surrendered their papers with all the courtesy possible. The retiring board has been an exceptionally efficient one. Its work has been marked by harmony and practicability in all lines of work. There had scarcely been a jar in any township in this county and program has been marked along all lines. The men composing the board were gentlemen and business men. The new board is one that promises to worthily sustain the reputation of its predecessor."
Wayne Twp -- Carlton Moore, the new trustee of Wayne Township was born Sept 12, 1862, on the farm which he now owns, 8 miles NW of Crawfordsville. After receiving a common school education he went two terms at the Waynetown graded schools and finished by taking a teacher's course at the Ladoga Normal. He has been a teacher in the public schools of this county since 1882, except one year which was spent in Southern Colorado. Mr. Moore has been one of the Democratic wheel horses in Wayne Twp for several years and is a most agreeable young gentleman. He has the qualifications of an excellent member of the new board.
