Moore was born in Lafayette County, Mississippi. Moore graduated from the University of Arkansas in 1881. He studied law and was admitted to the Arkansas bar in 1882. From 1894 to 1900, Moore served as probate judge in Phillips County, Arkansas. He was elected to the Arkansas House of Representatives in 1882, 1901, and 1903.
