  1. On this post, the last stone for Joseph P Moore was “erected by the Woodmen of the World.” There are severals stones also erected by the Woodmen in one of our local cemeteries in Festus, Missouri. It would make an interesting post to show more stones and perhaps have a little history of the Woodmen of the World, as I had never heard of them before walking Gamel Cemetery here. Thanks!
