|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.
Unknown Highland County

Thank you for the lovely photo. I must say you have done a wonderful job in this cemetery. It is a joy to have such a dedicated findagraver.

Thank you for taking the time to dig....yes, I have pretty much the same info. Hopefully, someday I will get down to Virginia in person to not only visit the gravesite but see what I can uncover in other documents .... again many thanks! I am thrilled to finally have a pic of their headstone.

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.
