Moores Ridge Cemetery
French Lick Township
5906 W. Co. Rd. 375S
Lat 38 30' 06" N  Long 86 34' 08" W

Land for a church and cemetery was donated to a Methodist group by John Moore about 1830. Sarah Barbara Crout, mother of John Moore's wife, had already been buried there. She had come with the Moores from North Carolina. The marker at her grave was placed in recent years, when the graveyard was being improved. Probate records show that her estate was being settled in July 1829. There are many empty spaces and old graves with field stone markers bearing no inscription......Lost River Chapter Of The DAR 1940's. As in many older cemeteries, some markers here are made of whetstone, or "Hindostan Slate", quarried near Hindostan Falls in Martin County. Whetstone is comprised of compressed layers of river silt, and though most have a very long life, these layers sometimes separate, taking the inscription with it. There are many such markers in this cemetery.
