Sir Ralph Gore was born in Union County, South Carolina to Joshua Gore Jr. and Matilda Temperance Starns. Rafe’s father was married twice and had two children by each wife. The second wife was Mary Jane Gunn. The first marriage produced Sir Ralph and William Greenbury and the second marriage brought Margaret Frances and Thomas Green Barron into the world.

Sir Rafe was also married twice, first to Lucinda E. Murphey who died in 1880 and then to Cynthia Ellen Morrow who died at Lamesa, Texas January 6, 1917.
The name Saraph is from 1st Chronicles 4:22 and with time, and the way it was pronounced in the South, became Sir Ralph or Sir Rafe.
He had one son by Lucinda and nine children by Cynthia. The ten were: Joshua Murphey, Helen Curl, Lula Inda, Rafe Richardson, James Roland, Jarmon, Harvey Carrol, Meta Idell, Harmon Maxwell and William Sturgeon.
In 1850 he was in Union County, SC, in 1860 Cass County, GA, in 1870 Bartow County, GA, in 1880 Anderson County, TX, in 1900 Johnson County, TX, in 1910 Hill County, TX, and in 1920 Jackson County, OK.
He was in Roswell, New Mexico visiting with his daughter, Inda Curtis in late 1924 when S.R. passed away at her home at 108 E. 8th Street on December 21, 1924.
The attending physician was E.M.Fisher, M.D. who certified the Rev. S.R. Gore died of arterial sclerosis due to old age.
Below is the obituary of S.R. Gore as it appeared in the Monday, December 22nd, 1924 Roswell Daily Record.
