In Reply to: Moore, Butler or Watson Family Cemetery by Dianne Gunn of 941

According to the Cemetery Book of Oglethorpe County there is a Moore cemetery. The following is a list of the burials there.

Moore, M.P. 1/25/1817 - 11/17/1904
Martha J. 3/7/1831 - 4/15/1870
Wife of M. P. Moore

Moore, Infant 10/15/1868 - 10/15/1868
Son of M.P. and Martha J. Moore
Moore, Mary E. 11/9/1824 - 2/26/1903
Moore, Sarah J. 5/5/1830 - 5/26/1900

The is an obit for in the book Oglethorpe County Deaths 1874-1938 for an E. P. Watson, it is from the Oglethorpe Echo dated Friday 9/13/1918

"Our community was shocked and saddened Sunday by the sudden death from apoplexy of one of our good citizens Mr. E. P. Watson. He leaves a wife and five children. Interment took place at the old Moore place, the estate of his maternal ancestor, Monday afternoon. He was generous, public spirited, a good neighbor and a good citizen."

There is also a death notice in the book for Sarah, M. P. and Mary. In Mary's notice is say she died at the home of her brother Mr. M. Pink Moore.

There are two Butler cemeteries in the Cemetery book, in the first one there is one tomb identified

Butler, Alvine A. 5/26/1826 - 8/24/1892
There are 15 unidentified and 4 box tombs

The next Butler cemetery has one grave with a new tombstone

Butler, Peter Patrick 2/8/1807 - 4/30/1870
Baptist Minister
plus 2 unidentified graves either his two wives or a wife and daughter.

There are no Watson cemeteries listed.

Here is a list of the Watson's that had death notices printed in the book.

Jacob H.
Mary Emma

Hope this is of help.
