Moore is remembered for saving 21 lives during the years she lived at the lighthouse where her father, Stephen Moore, became the keeper before her in 1817. The event was attended by community members, public officials, school children, and Coast Guard officials. Interestingly, also in attendance at the ceremony was a descendant of one of Kate Moore’s two Newfoundland dogs.
