|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. 10-26-2013 Second big milestone, 3,000 names entered.
I use a variety of sources to supply information for the graves I list. I attempt to add more than just dates and places. 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) Highland County Death Records 1853-1898 by Clay Hamilton. 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.

Kent, I am leaving photocopies of obituaries, or death notices at some of my relatives (or people connected to my relatives). If you don't like the photocopy added as a photo, let me know and I will take them down. I appreciate all you have done locating my relatives.

Thank you for the Gum family memorials photos.
In search of the name and headstone for a man who was known as Daniel Boone in Highland CO VA. His real name is not known to me. He lived in a log cabin on Rt 616, south, he moved mid 1970's and died I believe before 1980.
Any info would be appreciated.
Thank you, Christy

Thanks for being wonderful! I love the picture of the headstone for Susan. It is always a treat to find one that is one of the older ones that the carver took so much time working. Thanks for sharing it with me!

I would love to know where the cemetery is located. You did an awesome job documenting it. Cecilia Matheny married George Hite and their daughter Lizzie Hite is my husbands great great grandmother. I've been to Highland several times but did not know the location of this one. Thanks. Email me at Dmclaughlin@parker.com.
