Flourished: 1830-1840 Logan County, Illinois
Moore lived in Sangamon County, Illinois, as early as 1829, and he became one of the pioneers of present-day Logan County when he settled there in 1830. As the administrator of the estate of Nicholas Sintz, Moore retained Stuart & Lincoln at least twice to settle the debts of the estate in 1838 and 1839. By 1840, Moore was the head of a large household in Logan County, where he and four others were employed in agriculture. Moore's home served as a meeting house for an early Methodist congregation in Logan County. He later moved to Iowa.
