J. B. Moore, a former resident of Danville, kept a drug store in the building now occupied by Mr. Askins. Mr. Moore also contributed to the improvement of the town by building several snug housed in the Second ward. He afterwards sold his drug store to Samuel Hays and removed to Philadelphia in 1861. Subsequently he purchased a lot on the corner of Thirteenth and Lombard streets in that city, where he erected a large and elegant building in which he keeps a first class retail drug store. I have heard some of our leading physicians say, that without exception, Mr. J. B. Moore is the most complete chemist and druggist that ever located in Danville. The scientific papers he has contributed to the leading pharmaceutical journals of the United States have elicited the highest commendation of the profession, and his new discoveries in chemistry and pharmacy have been as highly approved. The honorable position Mr. Moore has attained in his profession, reflects credit on Danville, that was long the place of his residence. With his professional attainments, his liberal spirit and generous nature, it need only time and good health to secure a niche in the temple that never decays.
