John N. Moore Family Cemetery

Currituck Co, NC

The cemetery is located on the east side of Princess Anne Road just north of the house numbered 303.  This is in the location of the entrance to the Mackay Island Wildlife Refuge.  It sits directly across the highway from the Miller/Ferrell Cemetery.  To reach this area travel south on Princess Anne Road in Virginia Beach through Pungo and Back Bay until you enter Currituck Co, NC.  The cemetery sits several miles inside North Carolina 

The cemetery is so in need of care that driving down the road one cannot recognize the fenced area as a cemetery.  Although it initially caught my eye, I quickly dismissed it as being the site of some power or telephone company equipment.  After I photographed the cemetery across the road I decided to walk over and give it a closer look.  It was only upon approaching the entrance that its true identity became evident.  Cleaning this cemetery would not be a hard task.  It would be a great project for a youth group.  Cemetery Photographed February 26, 2005
