Moore-Jackson Cemetery is a historic cemetery located in the Woodside section of the New York City borough of Queens, active from before 1733 to at least 1868. It is one of only a few colonial era cemeteries in New York City and was designated as a New York City landmark in 1997. Surnames on extant tombstones include Moore, Jackson, Fish, Rapelye, Hallet, Mecke, and Berrian. The property is located between 31st and 32nd avenues and has frontages on both 51st and 54th streets, with extant tombstones visible from the 54th Street side. The tombstone of Augustine Moore (died 1769) is particularly prominent and well-preserved.
