MOORE, Thomas Patrick, congressman, born in Charlotte county, Virginia, in 1797 ; died in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, 21 July, 1853. He removed to Kentucky in childhood, was educated at Transylvania university, and during the war of 1812 was private secretary to Colonel John A. Campbell. After several terms in the legislature, he was elected to congress in 1822 as a Democrat, served in 1823-'9, and at the latter date was appointed minister to Colombia. On his return to Kentucky in 1834, he was again a candidate for congress, and received a certificate of election, but after much discussion that body gave his seat to Robert P. Letcher. He was lieutenant-colonel of the 3d United States dragoons during the Mexican war, and a delegate to the Kentucky constitutional convention in 1849-'50.
