Moore, George C
Moore, George C.
a Presbyterian minister, was born in Barre,Vermont, in 1832. He was educated in the State University, Burlington, Vermont, and became a member of the legal profession. In 1858 he removed to Texas, commenced teaching at Goliad, and soon after was called to take charge of Aranama College in that city. Becoming very much impressed with the spiritual desolation of Texas, he removed to Clinton in that state, and entered upon the study of theology under the care of the Reverend Joel T. Case; was licensed and ordained in 1865, and became pastor of the churches in Victoria and Lavaca, Texas. He was a member of the General Assembly which met in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1866. On his return he continued his labors until his death, September 3, 1867. Mr. Moore was remarkable for his piety, general intelligence, and impressive manner of preaching. His sermons were rich in thought and unction, and he was quite successful as an educator. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1868, page 345.
