#85 King Cemetery

Posted on

This cemetery is located in the Murfreesboro Quadrangle. According to Edith, Gene Aldridge from Colonial Pipeline took some pictures of the James Moore King Cemetery on Mooreland Lane in Murfreesboro. (at the end of Moore’s Lane and about 600 feet west of Overall Creek) This cemetery was destroyed by vandals, and was cemented over and the stones restored in 1954. Edith sent me these pictures with permission to put them online. Photographed by Gene Aldridge Received from Edith Bond bondhome@peoplepc.com

    Do you have any information on Captain Isaac Butler? where his grave is, birth year or death year? I know his first wife was Maria Virginia Overton. second wife was Jeanette Moore King, but that’s all. Please email me at wbapex@hotmail.com if you have any information.
