MOORE, Bartholomew Figures, lawyer, born in Halifax county, North Carolina, 29 January, 1801 ; died in Raleigh, North Carolina, 27 November, 1878. He was graduated at the University of North Carolina in 1820, licensed to practise law in 1823, and, after residing first in Nashville, Tennessee, and subsequently in Halifax, North Carolina, settled in Raleigh, where he afterward resided, he was in the legislature in 1836-'44, and, declining a renomination in 1846, devoted himself to his profession. He was attorney-general of North Carolina in 1848, and was appointed to revise the laws of that state in 1849-'54. During the civil war he was a strong Unionist, was a member of two constitutional conventions, and was one of the commissioners from North Carolina to confer with President Lincoln in 1865 as to the best mode of restoring the state to the Union. He was called the father of the North Carolina bar. Mr. Moore was a friend of public instruction, and left bequests to be applied to that purpose.
