Submitted by Lisa L Luther, Feb 21, 2005 [charleywest@hotmail.com]. Total records = 33.

Directions: At the Sumerco end of Laurel Fork (Summit Ridge), follow the road until Fire Tower Road is visible going upward on the right. Take Fire Tower Road and drive to the very top of the hill. The road should take you to the main gate of the Moore Cemetery. In wet conditions a 4x4 is required.

The inscriptions listed here are abbreviated versions of the actual text on the headstones. All military markers will be noted with � beside the name. Three headstones were completely illegible.

I walked and read this cemetery in Oct of 2004.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
