CEMETERIES of HENDERSON COUNTY


Mt. Moriah Cemetery

In the Reagan Community - Mt. Moriah Road. Mt. Moriah is a large, old, and well-maintained cemetery in the Reagan community located on Mt. Moriah Road. The cemetery shows evidence of past vandalism, especially in the large number of late nineteenth century-early twentieth century markers broken off a short distance above their bases. In 1992, several markers seemed to be out of place. Most of the damaged markers and those which seemed out of place in 1992 are about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way back from Mt. Moriah Road. David Donahue recorded this cemetery November 28, 1992 and checked and updated it November 10, 2003. First person buried at Mt. Moriah was N.R. Attaway.
