Isaiah Moore’s Grave Site at Concord Presbyterian Church Cemetery

12234 US-321
Blackstock, SC 29014

Isaiah Moore was a slave who belonged to a young son in the Brice family in the community of Woodward. One of the sons, Thomas, and Isaiah grew up together and became the best of friends. When the Brice son, by then Major Thomas W. Brice, was so severely injured in the War Between the States that he had to be left behind, Isaiah went out to search for him. After finding Thomas, Isaiah nursed him back to health. Isaiah's deathbed request was that he be buried close to his master. On December 22, 1917 when he was around 75 years old, Isaiah died and was buried a few feet beyond the fence of Concord Presbyterian Church's cemetery. More recently, the fence has been extended to include Isaiah Moore's grave site on the inside. Located in Woodward Community of Blackstock (14 miles south of Chester on US Hwy. 321).
