Complete Listing

For Information Contact: Michael E. Moring

The Mouring Family Cemetery is located on a field road west of Alabama Hwy 95 south of Abbeville, approximately 1 ˝ miles north of County Road 57 and the old Union School. A chain link fence surrounds the thirteen marked graves in the cemetery.

Note that most of the names are spelled MOURING, while two are spelled MORING. Over the years, it has been most common to hear either name pronounced as if it were MOURNING. These people are related to the Mourings buried in the Culp-Kirkland Cemetery. The old “Mourning Place” is located between the “Turkey Bill Kirkland Place” (where the Culp-Kirkland Cemetery is located) and the Spann-Roney Cemetery.

UNKNOWN. To the north of Cordelia Mouring is a grave marked by only the base of a monument, about 12” square. Whatever may have atop the base is gone. A foot marker bearing the initials I. M. leans against the base. This foot marker probably belongs to Isaac Mouring, because it matches his headstone, and his stone has a broken footstone with the initials W B M leaning against it.

UNKNOWN. In the easternmost row, beside no other marked grave, is a blank slab.

UNKNOWN. To the north of P. V. Mouring in the easternmost row is a grave marked by a blank slab and a crumbling concrete marker that once had some kind of glass and steel frame, but which is now destroyed.
