John Trotwood Moore
During the period of 1878-1885, John Trotwood Moore taught school at Pineapple, Alabama, and established Moore's Academy in Pineapple. John Trotwood Moore became head of the Tennessee State Library and Archives and while holding this post collected the questionnaires that have been published as, "Tennessee Civil War Questionnaires". He wrote numerous books an poems early in life and later turned his attention to historic/genealogical preservation. His four volume set of Tennessee histories, "Tennessee, The Volunteer State" are still held in high esteem. Volume One alone sells for $230.00 now, if you can find one. Among his writings are: "Songs & Stories from Tennessee", "Ole Mistis", "A Summer Hymnal", "The Bishop of Cottontown", "Uncle Wash, His Stories", "The Gift of the Grass", "Hearts of Hickory", and John Ballington Forester" among others. He wrote articles for the Chicago "Horse Review", and published "Trotwood's Monthly" magazine.
The Saturday Evening Post of 25 July, 1925, published his article, "Jackson and His Beloved Rachel" about Andrew and Rachel Jackson. He is also credited with "Compiled Biographical Questionnaires of 150 Prominent Tennesseans." His old home, "Arden Place" outside of Nashville, Tn., was torn down in 1967 and is now the site of John Trotwood Moore Junior High School. Born in Marion, Alabama, 26 August 1858, his most outstanding work was completed in Tennessee though he was originally from Alabama.
