Surnames in Moultrie County Cemeteries
The Moultrie County Historical and Genealogical Society's purpose is to bring together those
interested in the history and genealogy of Moultrie County, to discover, collect, and preserve any material which may help
establish or illustrate the history of the area and all its people, to provide for the cataloging and for the preservation
of such material and for its accessibility to those who wish to examine or study it. Also, to stimulate and encourage an interest
in the genealogy of our ancestors, to promote and publish historical and genealogical material in a scheduled publication
covering Moultrie County, and other counties, neighboring states and other areas form which our settlers and ancestors came.
