  1. His child, James Saunders Moran was a long-time writer for the Springfield Sun. I remember seeing him many times as a child on the streets of Springfield with my mother and grandmother. The last time I saw him was when my grandmother Moran passed away in May, 1983. He was over 90 in age. I was 23. I will never forget how strong his handshake was. He lived to be 100 and I believe almost made it to 101. Amazing man!!!
