Tombstone Tuesday: Julia E. Moore, 1842-1873

According the to the book ERIE COUNTY, OHIO CEMETERY CENSUS BEFORE 1909, Julia E. Moore was born on September 19, 1842, and she died on April 1, 1873. The Oakland Cemetery interment card indicates that Julia E. Moore died of consumption at the age of 30. She was laid to rest in the family lot at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. A lovely vine adorns her tombstone. You can read more about the Moore family in the book HISTORY OF THE BUELL FAMILY IN ENGLAND (Society Library, 1881). Pages 321 and 322 of this book provide the names of Julia's parents: P.C. Moore and Julia Buell Moore. Julia also had three brothers, Samuel, William and John Moore.
