    His funeral was held six years after his death. It was a mountain tradition to hold the funeral after the burial, but usually in the same year. Several preachers usually preached the funeral.

      Moses Clemons was a Herb Doctor - not a MD. He knew all kinds of herbal and native plant treatments (home remedies). From what my mother and older family members have said he treated animals and people. My grandmother knew a lot of these remedies and made lots of teas ect. There was a lot of Native American blood in Moses - the treatments probably came from his Native American ancestors.--Pat Caudill, April 2006
