Death*He died on 31 March 1831 at age 72; "A researcher recently found their old cemetery and posted the following on rootsweb: I found the gravestones of two Moores laying loose in a cow pasture near the Climax (Pittsylvania County, Virginia) community. Inscriptions read as follows: David Moore, died 31 Mar. 1831, aged about 90 years and Priscilla Moore, died 22 Feb 1823, aged about 75 years. These stones were on property later owned by the Booker T. Bennett family, whose cemetery is nearby, as well as the old home. They are about 0.5 miles from the main highway down a rough dirt road. This is not my line, but since the stones are some of the oldest I've found, I though they might be interesting to Moore researchers. David Moore did leave a will in Pittsylvania Co., but I haven't found a marriage for them. In his will he named three members of the Norcutt family. I was told that Moore took in the Norcutts and raised them." - https://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.moore/19237/mb.ashx.
