The son of Eli Moore and Deborah Updegraff/Updegraph, James was a school teacher and blacksmith. He married Rebecca Cook, the daughter of Martin and Elizabeth (Firebaugh) and they were the parents of: Thomas Anderson, Isaac L., Cinthia "Amanda" and Joseph E. Moore.

Upon the request of his brother Joe, he moved his family from Ohio in 1847 to Collinsville, Madison Co., Illinois where his brother was manufacturing cow bells.

Due to their opposing views, by time the Civil War had broken out, James and his wife Rebecca had parted ways. She moved to St. Louis and James went south where he remarried a woman known only in records by S.A.C. and had by her one son in 1864 named John Ashley Moore.

James died in a place then known as Cothranville and now known as Tigertown and according to his son was "laid to rest in the village cemetery."
