Alternative Title

Florida Census, 1935


Census of population


The Florida State Population Census for Haines City, Bradford County, Florida, for 1935. The census divides the population by address, age, gender, race, relationship to head of house, place of birth, occupation, education, and whether they owned or rented their property. State censuses were compiled in 1845 and every ten years after, and were abolished in 1949.

A notable individual listed in this record is Major James Lamarr Moore (1923-1994). Major Moore was born to Raymond R. Moore and Nettie Mae Moore on December 14, 1923, in Oxford, Alabama. Moore enlisted in the United States Army on January 1, 1923, to serve in World War II. At the time, he worked for the Great Atlantic Pacific Tea Company in Haines City, Florida. His military career spanned two decades, serving in World War II and the Korean War, and he ended his service as a Major. As a civilian, Moore married Wilma Lorene Rodman in 1942 and had four children. After Wilma’s death, he married Betty Louise Stallings, who had three children of her own. He owned and operated GEICO Insurance offices and was also a partner in the Fed Chek organization, where he served as Vice President. He died from heart failure of June 26, 1994, and is interned at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program Project. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
