Cemetery Information

The work you'll find on the Tombstone Project pages is very important.  Every day another cemetery is destroyed by development or lost to neglect.  Even without human interference, some of these grave markers are getting old and we soon won't be able to read them at all. For those interested in cemetery preservation, there are a number of publications and organizations actively involved in that work.  It is truly sad the number of monuments damaged by well meaning conservators who lack the requisite knowledge to actually preserve the monuments. Browse around the Tombstone Project and other cemetery pages a bit and see if there is a cemetery out there that you might be willing to tackle the transcription of.  If you do find useful information in one of these transcriptions, take a minute to thank the transcriber.  Their continued dedication to cemetery transcriptions is what provides many of us with that single clue that "cracks the case open..."  Note that we do not maintain any of these archives.  They are the generous donations of time from others working in the provision of free genealogical information...

Cherokee County Cemeteries

The following are some Cemeteries located in Cherokee County. Any correction or additions would be appreciated! This is a table compiled by Paul Sarratt prior to 1999 with some additions since then as we are made aware of them.
We've added a few which were found through GIS and web searches as well as researcher contributions. Very few of these transcriptions are maintained on this server but instead, links are provided to the external source. Most of these cemeteries can be found at
