About Clarence Bloomfield Moore

Mr Clarence Bloomfield Moore, 47, was born on 1 March 1865.

Moore lived in Washington DC with his wife Mabelle Swift Moore and their five children. He was a member of the firm of W B Hibbs and Co, brokers, of Washington, his annual income being $25,000. He also owned a farm in Montgomery County, Maryland, where he profitably raised cattle and horses, and had interests in real estate near Leesburg, Virginia.

Moore had been in England to shop for fox hounds for the Loundon Hunt. He purchased fifty pairs although they did not return with Moore on the Titanic

He boarded the Titanic at Southampton as a first class passenger (ticket number 113796, £42 8s). His manservant Charles Harrington accompanied him.

At the time of the collision Moore was playing cards in the smoking room with his compatriots and dining companions Major Archibald Butt, Harry Widener, and William Carter. During the evening Moore had related tales of his adventures in the West Virginia mountains and forests, in particular the time he helped a newspaper reporter get an interview with the outlaw Captain Anse Hatfield.

The group of friends remained more or less together as the ship sank.

Moore died in the sinking.

Mrs Moore later made a claim of $500,000, for loss of future income and $10,500 for loss of property, including $3,000 for pearl studs and $2,500 for pearl cuff links. She also claimed for loss of personal effects and other jewellery and for legal costs. Mrs Moore asked that her claim be heard under British law, in order to prevent the OSNC (Oceanic Steam Navigation Company) limiting its losses as it could under US law. Her claim was lodged in April 1913 in the District Court of the United States for the Southern District of New York. Along with many others, Mrs Moore's claim was met only on a pro rata basis, because in May 1914, the US Supreme Court ruled that British law did not apply to claims brought in US courts and OSNC was thus able to limit its liability in accordance with US law. -------------------- http://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/titanic-victim/clarence-bloomfield-moore.html
