There are some listings for Thomas Moore in Rutherford County, TN Chancery Court Records 1845-1867. However, I do not see any for Samuel Thomas or David Byrd.
Here is what I found on Thomas Moore:
Rutherford Co. TN Minute Book A
Linney Moore, widow of Thomas Moore; John Shelton and wife Frances L., William C. Solomon and wife Lucinda C., Sarah Maddox by her next friend John Hutton, Martha Maddox, Robert Moore, Theoderick Moore, Roxanna Moore, and Louisa Moore, the four last of whom being minors appear by their guardian Lewis Tucker. Ex Parte. 5 Jan 1848. (p.246-248).

Thomas Moore died intestate, leaving a widow an four children. Final Decree. 8 May 1850. (p.412-414).

In Wilson Co. TN Chancery Court Records 1842-1892
Bill of complaint of Samuel Moore and wife of Kentucky; Gross Hale, Joseph Hale, and John T. Hale, a minor, of Tennessee against John M. Hill, administrator of Elizabeth P. Scruggs. Gross Scruggs, gradnfather of said Moore and wife, died in 1835. In his will, Elizabeth P. Scruggs, his widow, was given a life estate. At her death, the negroes were to be divided between my daughters Jemima Ann, Eliza, and Martha. Jemima Ann's portion was to be in her possession during her lifetime, and then to her children. Jemima Ann was the wife of Jeremiah Hale. Complainants Julia A., Joseph, and John T. are the only heirs of the said Jemima Ann who died in 1850 or 1851. Elizabeth P. Scruggs died intestate during the Spring of 1859. Jeremiah Hale is still alive. 4 Jan 1861. (p.274-280).

Bill of complaint of F.E. Shannon, executor of L.H. Moore; E.J. Shannon, H.J. Shannon, Sarah E. Swain, W.D. Martin and wife Jane, John S. Brown and wife against H.A. Baird, Jesse L. Moore, and Thomas Baird, trustees of Mount Zion Church. Before marrying, L.H. Shannon and Bird Moore entered into a marriage contract in which her property was free from the control of the said Bird Moore. They separated in the year 18__. Before dying, L.H. Moore made a non-cupative will in whcih she appointed F.E. Shannon as executor. She directed that her slaves be sold and the interest from the money go to Mount Zion as long as it remained a church. If it ceased to be a church, the money was to go to her brothers and sisters. Before the slaves could be sold, they were liberated. There remained $700 in the estate. The Church believed the money should go to the brothers and sisters. They are seeking direction from the court. 18 Aug. 1866. (p.493-495).

I hope this helps you!
