Individual Cemetery Listings

Cemeteries are a treasure trove of information for the genealogist. Not only is there information on the names, spouses, military status, birth and death dates, you will find clues to extended family members by who may be buried in close proximity to your loved one.

I have listed the cemeteries with information at the NC USGenWeb Archives. As websites are recommended or located (and/or information is submitted) this page will be updated. A list of all possible cemeteries located in McDowell County is posted at the bottom of the page.

This may not be a complete list of Cemeteries in McDowell County, please email if you have changes or additions to this list. Cemeteries with listings at NC USGebWeb are noted.

If you would like to contribute a transcription or photos, please email.
