The most recent update made on 3 May, 2012.

I wish to present the transcriptions of the loved ones buried at Moorehead Cemetery. This small once family owned cemetery is located on what was once called Moorehead Hill. The road is now known as Racoon Run Road (TR113) between Stone Quarry Rd (TR99) and Corner Road (TR112). It's located in the southeast corner of Liberty Township, Licking Co., Ohio. The cemetery is located on top of a hillside with a beautiful view of the agricultural land around it. In earlier days the land across the road from it was wooded, but in modern times, it has been cleared by the landowner and planted with crops. As always, I have made every effort to take my time and accurately read the names and dates contained on memorial stones here. There has been much damage to the stones in this cemetery, perhaps because of it's rather isolated location. Many of the stones are either completely missing and or damaged from the ravages of natural elements over time and unfortunately showing some damage due to malicious destruction. I found one particularly heavy but stable stone overturned just since my visit there last fall. I am responsible for all transcriptions contained in this report, with the exception of any information containing an [ * ] or [**] asterisk symbol within brackets. Any information within brackets [ ] without * symbol will be my personal observations or personal knowledge. My only reference to earlier reports not made by me will be only to supplement where the memorial stone no longer exist or has deteriorated to a condition which would otherwise cause this information to become lost. In this instance the source is an earlier report given to me by the kindness of Mr & Mrs. Lee Riffe, but didn't contain the transcribers name.
