I am looking for the burial place of Mary Eleanor Moore Faison, died in 1870's possibly she was the wife of Dr. Elias Kilby Faison, who died at Age 30 in 1859 from a horse and buggy accident. According to Census records, Mary E. Moore Faison must have been the daughter of Daniel C. Moore and the sister of Dr. Matthew Moore. She had one daughter, who was born two months after her father died. Her name was Margaret Kilby Faison. My sister and I found Dr. E. K.'s grave on the old James Faison Plantation in Turkey. Amelia Ivey Faison, the wife of Elisha Faison, is buried in this cemetery. Margaret Cromartie is buried in Clinton Cemetery with her husband, Elias Faison, son of Elisha and Amelia Faison and father of Dr. E. Kilby Faison. and two sisters who died young. Mary Eleanor Moore Faison does not show up on the 1880 census, but her daughter does (living with her uncle, Dr. Matthew Moore, so I assume Daniel C. Moore was dead by then). I have found two land transactions for Daniel C. Moore, but that is about it. I am still searching for tombstones in the wonderful Duplin County tombstone photos. From what I can gather from the land sales of D.C. Moore, he owned land in or around Kenansville, so I am looking at the cemeteries in that area.
