#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

This is why we are doing this. This stone will be gone in another 10 years.  You can see it and decide for yourself what it says.  Reinhardt grave
