Spencer Moore moved from NC to Greene Co GA, then to Monroe Co GA and then in 1839 to Macon Co AL (now Lee Co AL). He bought a large plantation between Auburn and Notasulga, Alabama. The Moore road which runs in front of this land was named after him. Spencer was a Mason and an active supporter of Auburn's Female College which he helped organize in 1846. He served in the War of 1812 and the Indian War of 1836 for which he received a land grant. When he moved to Alabama he formed a land company dealing with Indian land. His partners were Milton Tarrer and his two son-in-laws, Orin and Willis Cox.

Spencer buried 3 wives but was outlived by his fourth wife.
