The Patrick Moore Cemetery
The Patrick Moore Cemetery is located SE of Brush Creek. At the intesection
of Earl Steele Rd and Potter Rd there is a foundation of old burned house
and a new log house on hill. Turn on this farm road and continue for a short
distance and the Wills Cemetery is on the right. Continue this road to a
house. Ask permission at this house and continue farm road to a barn where
road turns right along edge of field to another barn. Cemetery is in the
bushes and briars to south of barn. It is approx. 1 mile from the Potter Rd
& Earl Steele Rd intersection.The unusual metal markers placed by unknown
family members years after the death of Patrick Moore provide much of the
information that is known about this family.
