MOSER AND BLACKMAN INSCRIPTION BOOK

MONROE COUNTY, TENNESSEE

My Home Page

 

This ledger originally belonged to Moser and Blackman, stonecutters, whose shop was on Marble Hill (Lakeside) in Monroe Co. TN in the 1850s and 1860s. The shop was destroyed in the Civil War. Luther M. Blackman (1843-1918) lived in the Bat Creek/Eve Mills area of Monroe County. He was a major and Quartermaster in the 4th Tennessee Cavalry, USA in the Civil War and served from Oct. 12, 1865 to the end of 1869 in the 34th and 35th General Assembly of Tennessee.

Recorded in the ledger are the orders for tombstones along with their inscriptions. No indication is given as to the cemetery where the stones are to be erected. Many of these stones are still standing in cemeteries in Monroe County, but many others have disappeared. Although the shop operated only from 1857 to 1860, many of the inscriptions are for tombstones for people who died much earlier.

The transcription is made from a photocopy of the original. Items single spaced indicate they were part of a single order with the price and sometimes the name of the purchaser at the end. The pages in the original book are not numbered. It is very fragile and more copies of the original will not be made. The original ledger belongs to a granddaughter of Luther Blackman.
