"I ask Grandfather how he came from Ireland to America and he said he built a rafter and floated over. lol He had a great irish sense of humor. He and grandmother were well thought of in the community. This summer 2010 I went back to visit the home they built in 1942. I was filed with emotions and warm memories. Maybe I'll write my memories of them.

"A Tribute in Honor & Memory of Robert (Pat) Edward Moore. Co Founder- of
Rolfe Pentecostal Holiness
Church, Rolfe W. Va. in McDowell County
Born in Dubin. Ireland Robert Moore came to the United States when he was
a young man. He was of the Catholic faith. He became associated with the
Pentecostal through the healing of his child.
He recieved the Ноly Ghost and became strong Pentecostal believer. Most
everyone knew him as Pat.
It was in the spring of 1939, when the Rolfe Pentecostal Church
became a reality. Robert Edward Moore, who was the caretaker of Rolfe Grade
School felt the need of a Pantecostal Holiness
church in the community. He talked with the school board and they agreeded
to let Reverend C.A. Hensãey conduct a revival in the school. The revival
was a great success. Many people шаге saved, sanctified, and received the
Holy Ghost. The Rolfe Church was born and organized with Rev. C.A. Hensley
as the first Pastor. Robert Moore and his wife were very well known in the
community, and Mr.
Moore went to business places and ask for contributions to help buy the
lumber to build the church.
He worked along with the rest of the volunteer help. He worked as cofounder
along with Rev. Hensley.
The first deacons were Roy Lambert from Algoma, George Thornhill from
Gilliam, and Dewey Adams
from Rolfe, W.Va. Frank Morelock from Algoma became the secretary and
treasurer and then Sunday
School teacher.

"Later on, Robert Moore and his wife Lula built the house that is still
there on the hill beside the church. Their home was the home of all the
evangelists that came including Sylvia Harvey, who later became Sylvia
Sexton, wife of Dan Sexton, who become pastor in 1954. Rev. Joe Lilly spent
every weekend at the Moore home while pastoring the church, Joseph W.
Moore, son of Robert and Lula
preached in the church after his safe return as POW during World War Two.

"There is so much more I could say about my Father and his work in the
church, but I am happy to know that the church is still strong in the Lord
after 57 years.
