Rupp Cemetery, Whitehouse, OH has 70 persons buried there per Find A Grave. Found no one with the Moore surname there.
I have photos of the actual stone.  It is in poor condition.  It tells his age and has the quote:" Farewell my wife and children all From you a father Christ doth call Mourn not for me; it is in vain To call me to your sight again. He died days after the 1870 census.  

I found the information to locate the stone in a book in the Toledo library.  I also talked to the caretaker of Rupp and did the research at Waterville Historical Society.  Robert Moore has many purchases listed in the Rupp store registry. His son and daughter and their families also lived in the area.  

I have found several cemetery stones that are not in Find a Grave.  Sometimes old fashioned leg work provides more answers than research on the internet.  I hope this provides clarity.
If you feel so inclined, you could inform Find A Grave of your knowledge.

His wife is Catherine A Moore and his tombstone has him as a father. The cemetery info does not indicate the names of any offspring.   Robert Moore, born Ireland, wife named Cathrine A. and son named Ray R Moore who was born in Ohio in Nov 1881.  Robert Moore born Ireland 1839. wife, Catharine, son Joseph and daughter Etta.

Thanks for the info  re: Robert Moore born 1839.  I actually have all of this information.  He was my great grandfather.  Catherine Ann Davidson Moore was originally married to James Blair Moore , Robert's brother who died in the Civil War.   The Ray R Moore was actually Robert ROY Moore until he married my grandmother Petronella Dressel, at this time he converted to Catholicism and took the name Francis.
