Barger Family Cemetery
Hickory, Catawba County, North Carolina

[marylanav@juno.com]. Total records = 13.

Directions in North Carolina, I-40 exit 125, turn south, then right [west] on Highway 70 about a mile and the cemetery is on the left [south] between the overpass for I-40 and a mattress store

I think J & L used cars owns the land around it. Currently there is no caretaker: however I noticed it because they are doing some construction around it.

They are building a car lot around it, but the man that was operating the heavy equipment, a Mr Craig from Lenoir says they plan to put shrubs around it and fix the fence and according to NC law they have to take care of it.

This cemetery is about 200 years old, I do not believe it is active. The sign says it was established about 1800 These are the only names remaining on tombstones now.

I read the cemetery 01 Mar 2002.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
