Tolbert Robert O. Moore, early landowner
Once known as the “Tolbert Moore Free Gravel Road,” Moore Road was the main route from Traders Point to Zionsville. It was name for Tolbert Moore, who likely paid for and maintained the road before it became a county road. His home, the Moore-Asher Home (also named for subsequent owners, the Asher Family) is located at 8407 Moore Road and was built around 1860.
Moore was born in November 1856 to early Pike residents John and Sara Moore and was married to Sarah Elizabeth “Lizzie” White in 1878. He died in 1935. He is buried at the Pleasant Hill Cemetery, which was adjacent to his land.
