Pursell Burying Ground -1867

At the time of John Moore's death in 1807 he and Ann had just bought 125 acres of land from the Traugers in Alexandria, Hunterdon County.

Ann died in 1843 and was buried next to her husband in Upper Black Eddy. Her son's continued to farm the land in Hunterdon. 90 acres of the original land is still owned by their descendents to this day!
