      Between 1840 and 1850, Pleasant Moore moved to Coles Co., IL, with his brother Reuben Moore (b. 2 Dec 1797, d. 22 Jun 1859). After Reuben's first wife Mary died in 1855, he married Matilda Johnston Hall. Matilda was the daughter of Sarah Bush Johnston Lincoln and had been married to Squire Hall who died in 1851. Sarah Bush Lincoln moved in with the Moores after the death of her husband, Thomas. She was living there when she last saw her stepson, Abraham Lincoln, when he came to visit his father's grave in 1861. The Moore house, a pre-Civil War structure, has been reconstructed and stands approximately one mile north of the Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site.

      Reuben Moore and his first wife Mary are buried in the Thomas Lincoln Cemetery in Coles Co., IL. It is possible that Pleasant Moore and his wife are also buried there.
