expand icon Historical Note
Ann Elizabeth Moore was born on May 12, 1954 to parents John and Barbara Moore. She spent much of her adolescence in San Francisco and Davis, California. She had two older sisters - Carolyn and Rebecca - and her father served as a minister in the United Methodist Church. She lived with her sister Rebecca and her husband Patrick Clary in Washington, D.C. during the summer of 1971 and she volunteered her time at the Children’s Hospital of the District of Columbia. After graduating high school in 1972, Ann moved to Redwood Valley to live with her other sister, Carolyn, and work in the Peoples Temple church. Ann attended Santa Rosa Junior College and earned a degree in nursing in 1975. In the years to follow, Ann gradually became more involved with Peoples Temple, becoming a member of Jim Jones’ inner circle. She moved with the group to Jonestown, in Guyana, in 1976 where she helped to develop the Peoples Temple Agricultural Project. Ann and her sister Carolyn died in the tragedy at Jonestown on November 18, 1978.
