Gene Jessee remembers Cole, Moore roles in Civil War
Nathaniel Moore and wife Frances donated land for Moore Cemetery
Comments re photo 43381 Old Photo Civil War Reunion at Weed Adair Co KY
By Gene Jessee
Thanks to Judge Lawless for submitting the picture. Nathaniel Moore is my great grandfather. He is buried in the Moore Cemetery in the Weed community of Adair County.
The cemetery land was donated by Nathaniel Moore and his wife, Frances; believed to be started when their son, Luther Moore, passed away. Nathaniel was in the Union Army and was the father of my grandmother, Pollie Moore Cole. My grandfather, Ran Cole, was from Tennessee; my great grandfather, Walter Cole, fought in the Confederate Army.
According to my grandmother, Pollie Cole, there was no animosity between the two families. Walter Cole was wounded in the battle of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He is buried alongside his wife, Elizabeth, in Campaign TN --Gene Jessee
