Search Moorer-Murray Family Cemetery:

The Moorer - Murray Family Cemetery was established @ 1845, possibly earlier, by the local Moorer and Murray families. It is surrounded by a masonry wall and only Moorers and Murrays are buried within it. It has not been used since @ 1930. It is surrounded by property now owned by the Herbert Pendarvis family. Around 1950s some of the local African-American churches with no cemetery began burying in the
area near the masonry wall.They refer to it as the Willie Moorer Cemetery,( as that is who gave they say gave them permission to bury on the land there). Harold M. Dantzler does not nor has he ever owned the surrounding land and none of the Moorer family married a Vogt. I do not know where this info came in from unless there is another cemetery that matches those facts. There are 27 tombstones there and several sunken places. All the info I gave here is documented and correct. Linda Murray Baker
