This chapter examines Moore’s early experience as a physician in Durham and what he learned on the job. When he ran for county coroner, he received many threats and vitriol. The chapter also documents Moore’s marriage to Sarah (“Cottie”) McCotta Dancy on December 18, 1869 and the racism and classism inherent in their match. The chapter also introduces readers to Moore’s two daughters, particularly Lyda Moore Merrick whose reminiscences are quoted.
