A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada

A visit to the Moore Hill Cemetery ...

We aren't confident of the location of the Moore Hill Cemetery, so consider the above location as an estimate.<1>

Introduction ...

Since our focus is on geography, we don't have burial or interment information. Nor do we have any contact information for the Moore Hill Cemetery. For information of that nature, we suggest the Find-A-Grave<2> website: The Moore Hill Cemetery (FAG ID #84081)

We have organized the cemeteries in our Gazetteer based on a problem that we had while working on our own genealogy. Without specifying the cemeteries involved, we found an ancestor that we believed to have been buried in one cemetery was actually buried elsewhere. We discovered that his burial had been refused at the last moment and the family had scrambled to make new arrangements. By looking at nearby cemeteries, the surrounding communities and in newspapers of the period, we were finally able to locate his burial site. Should you find yourself in the same situation, we hope that our Gazetteer helps you discover your lost ancestor.

Footnotes ...

<1>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<2>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website:
