Mount Moor Cemetery sits in the shadow of the Palisades
Center Mall, just north of Route 59.
This well kept cemetery
is maintained by the Mount Moor Cemetery Association located at 1 Milford Lane,
Suffern, New York 10901.
A historical sign at the entrance of the cemetery
says, "This: Burying ground for Colored people, was deeded on July 7, 1849 by
James Benson and Jane Benson his wife to William H. Moor, Stephen Samuels and
Isaac Williams, trustees. The cemetery has provided burial space for colored people,
including veterans of the Civil War, the Spanish American War, World Wars l and
ll and the Korean War. The grounds have been maintained since 1940 by the Mount
Moor Cemetery Association, Inc."
Although several stones appear to have
been professionally restored, many are too badly worn to read. There are also
many field stones often used as burial markers with no inscriptions as well as
a plain wooden cross.
This is a complete listing of burials transcribed on Jun
30, 2002 from my readings when I walked the cemetery on Apr 8, 2002.
