|I am listing the cemeteries in the Vital Records of Highland County, Va. I hope to visit each burial site and photograph the headstones. However the Matheny's directions some times are not very detailed. Making it difficult to located the small family cemeteries. |
11-27-2011-First big milestone, I have entered 1,000 names into the database.
I use a variety of sources to supply information for the graves I list. I attempt to add more than just dates and places. Two important references that I use are Vital Records of Highland County Virginia by the Mathneys (They traipsed all over Highland in the 1970's & 1980's transcribing nearly all the headstones in the county) Pendleton County WV Grave Register. Other sources include 1910 Mortons History of Highland County & 1911 Morton's History of Pendleton County. Over the years I have complied information on graves (some unmarked) from the elder residents of Highland & Pendleton.

|Melody Roswell||Andrew Lockridge and wife Jane Graham grave site.|
I was told by family members that Andrew was actually buried on his homestead in Augusta Co. VA. In fact there is a house that some of his descendants still occupy as of today. The names and dates are right according to our family bible but I do not know why he would be in Highland Co. VA when in fact he lived in Augusta Co. VA. Can you enlighten me please or maybe there was a county name change or something and if so when?

Thank you very much for taking such good pictures of the above subject grave stones. May I copy the pictures for my personal family history.

|Karen Brewer||RE: Siron Farm Cemetery, Highland Co., VA|
Thank you for trying to locate the cemetery and for keeping me up to date.

I can not thank you enough for locating the cemetery where my Great Grandmother Carrie Hyer and my Great, Great Grandmother Malinda Hyer are buried. I have had photographs of their headstones for years, but did not know the name of the cemetery. I have posted the headstone photographs. Have you actually walked this cemetery? I wonder if the white fence is still there. I live in Iowa, so I really appreciate your consideration in entering their memorials.
|Eleanor Gibson||Thanks for the Rexrode photo|
I cannot express my gratitude for fulfilling all of my family requests. I seldom am able to return to the cemetery and was so very happy to see my request were fulfilled. Thanks again for all the effort you have made and your contributions to Find A Grave!
Thank you VERY MUCH for the photos in Doe Hill of my Wilson family. It is much appreciated!
