Watauga County Cemeteries

Classification: Query
There are so many family and smaller cemeteries located throughout Watauga County, that are known by more than one name. I'm wondering if anyone has ever considered creating a list of all the cemeteries, with any alternate or former names, plus accurate directions as to how to locate them.

Death certificates and obituaries are almost useless, when an incorrect cemetery name is used or even lists a general area instead of a cemetery name.

So many cemeteries were once known by one name and now go by something else, which makes it very confusing for anyone not familiar with local history.

I know many of the cemeteries were videotaped, but without a complete descriptive name and location list, errors continue to occur, when they can be eliminated.
