This is the cemetery of "Moorefield," ca.1790, the home of famed Baptist minister Jeremiah Moore. A plaque reading "Within this enclosure are buried the Rev. Jeremiah Moore (1746-1815) and his wife Lydia Reno Moore (1745-1835) and some of their children and grandchildren" was once affixed to the wall, but disappeared prior to 1987.

Obituary added by Audrey: The Alexandria Gazette, 25 February 1815; page 3
DIED, on the 23d instant, after a long illness, Jeremiah Moore, Senior, of Fairfax County, Va in the 69th year of his age. -- He has left behind him an aged widow, the companion of his youth, with nine children, to bemoan the loss of a kind husband and an affectionate father. The character of the deceased, is generally known in his own, and neighboring states. -- He was a laborious and fathful defender of the doctrines of the everlasting gospel -- nor did he more assert, and illustrate these in his writings and public di[s]courses, than he confirmed their heavenly origin, by a conduct according to Godliness. More than forty years he labored in the Vineyard of his Divine Master. He now is called home to receive his wages -- not of debt, but of grace. -- Grace, that theme which so many years employed his tongue, and rejoiced his heart.
The whole course of his public ministry proved that he was mindful of that divine injunction, "Buy the truth and sell it not." Many there are, who need not printed columns to revive in their minds a recollection of his labors -- many upon the fleshly tables of whose hearts his commendatory epistles are deeply written.
He signified to a familiar friend a few weeks before his death, that the time of his departure was at hand -- may we not add, that, "he has fought the good fight ; finished his course ; kept the faith."
