The Michael Weidner Cemetery is located on land obtained by Michael Whitener by a land grant, which was entered March 8, 1763 in Land Grant book 17:124 and issued Nov. 16, 1764. The land grant joins land purchased in 1762 from Henry Whitener. This land is now in Catawba Co., NC.
Directions: From Hickory take Hwy 127 South to Walgreen's Drug Store. Turn left onto SR 1008 and go several miles. After crossing the bridge the cemetery is a short distance further on the left and is enclosed with a fence. Owned by Catawba County Historical Association, this 1/10-acre plot has burial sites dating from 1700 to 1923.
Additional information: Might I suggest adding to the directions that it's 7 miles from the bridge (on SR 1008) and it's very hard to see because of bushes and foliage. Look for the tiny blue house. If you don't look between the brushes and foliage, you are going to miss it.
