Search Moore Family Burial Grounds:

This small private cemetery was the primary burial ground of the Moore family for many generations. The earliest burial was Thomas Moore Senr. who died in 1797. Many original tombstones survive. In the 1960s the cemetery was fenced and a large cenotaph was placed which repeats the names found on the tombstones. The family's enslaved people are said to be buried outside the present iron fence in graves which are not marked.

Located in Plains District of Rockingham County VA, four miles southwest of New Market (Shenandoah County) in a field south of Moore's Mill Road (796) and west of Stultz Mill Lane, approximately 400 feet northwest of the point where War Branch flows into Smith Creek.
