Her son, Frederick P. Moore Jr. was married in Feb of 1918 and killed in World War I only five months later. Frederick P. Moore Sr  had come from a Quaker background and was a pacifist. Frances also did not want any of her children to go to war. However, Frederick and his brother "Mott" both enlisted. After Frederick was killed near Fossy France, his mother, Frances Whiting Moore, helped found and became the first president of The American Legion Auxiliary of Pennsylvania. (See link to photo below). She was instrumental in getting the war memorial which was originally installed at Balfour Park but later moved to the park adjoining the Bellevue Public Library.
