Age at death: approximately 59 years.

Distinguished career as a doctor and politician, serving in the Georgia State Legislature, Justice of the Inferior Court, and Clerk-of-Court. . . friends included Governor Troup and Senator David Blackshear. "He seemed to have enjoyed a night-out with the boys since he was arrested along with other prominent Laurens County citizens and three of his sons for gambling at cards in 1832." He was however, described in the Official History of Laurens County, Ga. 1807 - 1941, as a "gentleman of refined manner, in bearing courtly." The history also remarked on his horsemanship, his loyalty to friends, and their respect and admiration for him. In 1827 he was ordered to jail for contempt of court for refusing to execute an order by Judge Moses Fort against his friends Joseph Blackshear and others. According to the county history, that night, friends arrived with hampers of food and held a banquet in his honor.

Dr. Moore was also noted for the circles in which he had moved before removing to Georgia. In an article in the Bench and Bar of Georgia, Moore was referred to as a "high-toned gentleman of the olden-time, who in his youth attended the levees (receptions] of President George Washington in Philadelphia [March 1793]."
