Abstract: Moore County, established in 1784 by splitting Cumberland County in two, is a large wedge shaped area of 408,960 acres or 639 square miles. Most of the area in the southern portion of the county is sandhills or pine barren, with the remainder of the soil being a loamy clay . . . Early residents were primarily of Scotch descent with German, Irish, and English settlers immigrating to the area during the two succeeding decades after 1750 . . . The academy movement in Moore County, previously traced, came to a close with the establishment of Elise Academy in 1904 in Hemp, a small community in the northwestern portion of the county.
