  1. Disputed. Moses 1894-1925 is incorrectly attributed to being the son of Walter and Lula White. These are my great-grandparents. They had no such son. I’ve been to the graveyard and found the plot and mark the corners and Moses was outside of that plot. Since then someone has removed all the cornerstones of our family plot. :(. With further research you’ll find that Henry Moses Moore is the actual person buried there. – Gary White[]
