Search Moore Family Cemetery (Fort Pickett):

"This family cemetery was one of two (see Watkins Cemetery) located north of Wilcox Road near southern Pelham Road (Training Area 32) in what was Tract H-256 (cemetery B) owned by William H.Y. Moore et ux. in 1944 (see Table 1 and Figure 1). It is marked as "relocated" on the 1944 map and not included on Godburn's list of cemeteries relocated to Butterwood Church (Godburn 1977: Appendix G). Although no specific connection between this cemetery and the relocated burials marked with metal markers at Gills Bridge Road Cemetery can be made (see Table 5), deed research for this tract (see Table 12) suggests that these burials were African Americans and therefore probably relocated to Gills Bridge Road Cemetery. The exact location of this former cemetery had not been identified at the time of this survey."
