Heaven seems to us more bright since the spirit of our dear one took its happy homeward flight. On TJ grave the spelling is MOORE, but on their children's grave his name is spelled MOON.

Next line reads: PVT 157 Depot Brig. Last line: 10-14-1918.

The other grave next to Posey is also Woodmen of the world Memorial and this grave is sinking into ground badly as are some other graves that are unmarked. A.H.S. Moon Born. 11-12-1866 Died. 5-9-1931 Slab reads; FATHER gone but not forgotten. Grave next to this one is old slab with T W I WP Y MOON scratched into slab.
