The Westbrook Cemetery, on Highway 28, west of Jefferson, was in bad condition, the marble slabs broken, standing stones crumbling. Lucretia Norris and David Compton, determined to preserve these evidences of a pioneer family, enlisted the help of descendants to have the stones moved to the Jefferson cemetery and repaired. A stone was erected to Moses, and they may be seen in the south section of the cemetery.
