Vonnell Williams Pearre Mr. Doyle, Thank you for taking a picture of Vonnell's grave marker. I noticed that her last name was spelled Perrie. I have never seen this spelling before. I have always seen it spelled Pearre on all of my family's marriage records and grave markers. I am related through her husband, Joe Henry Pearre, who was my cousin. Thank you for all of your help, Edie
Tom Thank you for posting these graves on this findagrave site! There are others there you may not have seen. I hope to clean up the cemetery if I can get permission from the owner of the surrounding land.
The cemetery has, since the first body was entered, been known as the Old Moorer Burying Ground.
The cemetery is really more associated with Jamison than Riley. It is located off the historic old Belleville Road.
The cemetery was on the land of the Kings Grant to Peter Murer of Switzerland in 1735. Peter and others of his early family are buried there. With no stones in the area, early settlers used fat litered head boards which disappeared with time or wildfire. If I can get the surface clean I plan to investigate and locate the graves present.
Sandi Jessica Hey, Contact me. I have photos of Beckwith and Moorers. I did a survey of this cemetery in 1980s. Tom the name of the cemetery is "The Old Moorer Burying Ground." I believe there are a number of unmarked graves and I have some possible names. I hope to go clean it up and do some investigation one day now that I am retired. These are my direct kin. firstname.lastname@example.org
I was wondering if you observed anything that appeared to be Unmarked graves in this Cemetery? The reason I'm asking is because I have 2 Death Records for Ancestors in Calhoun County, that appears to state either Moorer or Moore's graveyard, and I was wondering whether to graveyard you've posted is it? I couldn't find a Moore's graveyard on Find A Grave. My ancestor died in the township of Lyons, Calhoun, South Carolina. Any assistance you can give is appreciated. Sandi :-)
Moorer Cemetery Thank you for your work on the Moorer Cemetery. L. R. Beckwith and Ann Hess Moorer were my grandfather's grandparents. There is a lot of very interesting Civil War-related history involving those two that I am just starting to piece together.
Having a record from someone who actually set foot in the graveyard and documented everything is really invaluable to me while I do this work from a couple of states away. Thank you again for your work.
