Moore—At Narragansett Pier, R.I., Sept. 4, 1892, FLORENCE V., daughter of the late Robert Greenhow and widow of Gen. Tredwell Moore, U.S. Army.
Some sources claim that Florence is buried in Wooster Cemetery, Wooster, Wayne County, Ohio. On August 13, 2005 we visited there and were surprised to learn that there are no records indicating Florence Virginia Greenhow Moore is buried there. The caretaker said that at one time Seymour Treadwell Moore owned lots in Section 14, but they were probably sold off at some time, since other folks are now buried in those lots. There is a Florence Mohre buried here.
We were almost
misled ourselves at this cemetery when we found a crypt with a service
marker on it for S.F. Moore. We assumed the marker was mis-typed and
was actually for S. T. Moore. However, further investigation at the
caretakers office confirmed that a Simon Francis Moore was buried
here and not our Seymour Treadwell Moore.
So, we have
concluded in spite of several persons stating that Treadwell and
Florence are buried at the Wooster Cemetery that they are indeed, NOT

Armed with this
information I posted a request on FindaGrave.com
A little over a year later I was contacted by a person finding my request. He graciously offered to take a look for Florence's stone. In November 2006 Stephen D. Puerini visited Riverside Cemetery and photographed Florence's marker which is a large round boulder.
Stephen's comments: "Sorry, but I
did not see a marker for Treadwell
Woodridge Moore, Jr. and I didn't see that name listed in the Cemetery
book I was referencing. Florence Virginia Moore's name is also the only
name on the stone. But for some reason, there is the Veterans of
Foreign Wars maker there - and Treadwell was a career military man. Is
the marker there for Florence, or for Treadwell?"
"I did not take a rubbing, but I did attempt to write down the inscription, feeling it out with my fingers and viewing it from varying angles. Here's what I got:
FLORENCE VIRGINIA MOORE
FEB 29 1836
SEPT 4 1892
GOD HAS TAKEN
Note, the cemetery book has her dob as Feb 28 1836, which is probably right, though I wrote down the 29th at graveside. "GOD HAS TAKEN" seems like there should be more to it, but I didn't see it/catch it."
Thanks VERY much
to Stephen who has finally found Florence's final resting place.
Also, much thanks for the following photos Stephen sent us after his visit to Riverside Cemetery.
