William Cady Moore was a telegraph operator. He lived at 2006 Beach Avenue from 1903 to 1905.

There is little information available for him. He was born in the United States. He was married to Ella Josephine Moore. She was born in Nova Scotia on March 11, about 1871. Ella’s father was John Kane. (Some sources say that Ella’s surname was Conners or Kinnear.) Ella’s mother was Mary Moray.

It appears that William died between 1904 and 1910. On November 21, 1910, in Vancouver, Ella married Ralph Johnstone Wilson, who worked for the Vancouver World newspaper. (Further information appears on the page for Ralph Johnstone Wilson, who lived at 1120 Denman Street in 1917.)

Ella died in Vancouver on March 3, 1949. She was buried in Ocean View Cemetery in Vancouver. Her son, Harold Cady Moore, was the informant on her death certificate.

William and Ella had a son, Harold Cady Moore.
