The Parker Moore Graveyard constituted only a
small portion of the family farm, left in Lewis Moore's
1841 will to his wife Patience. In the years between
1835 and 1940, Civil War veterans, family, friends
and four generations of the Moore's were buried in
the "old Parker Moore graveyard." There are 170
known graves, some without markers. The last burial
at the site was Elizabeth Upton who passed away in
1940 at the age 91.
