Moses Gill (January 18, 1734 – May 20, 1800) was a U.S. political figure.

He was Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts from 1794 until his death. When Governor Increase Sumner died on June 7, 1799, he became Acting Governor. By law, he retained the title of Lieutenant Governor.

When Gill himself died in office on just one year later, no one was in place to serve after his death. For eight days, the Governor's Council ruled the state until the inauguration of Caleb Strong.
