MOODY, George W. (Dr.)

DR. GEORGE W. MOODY, a leading physician of Shelbyville, was born November 5, 1848, being a son of Samuel S. Moody (see sketch of C. J. Moody).  He was reared with his parents to the age of twenty-one, and had begun the study of medicine.  In 1869 he graduated in the University of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia.  He then located in Shelbyville, where he has met with justly deserved success in the practice of his profession.

He was married, March 16, 1861, to Miss Georgie Strong, a native of this county.  Her parents were from northern Alabama, and her mother is the daughter of Gen. Moore, of Tullahoma, Tenn.  Dr. Moody’s married life has been blessed in the birth of two children, viz.: Winston G. and Samuel S.  Himself and wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, and he is steward and trustee of the same.  He is a member of the Medical Society of Tennessee, a Democrat in politics, and is a worthy and highly respected citizen of the county.
