Catawba County Cemetery Index

Stone of  Frederick Mauser (1749-1799), Old St. Paul's Church Cemetery DSH


This index has been compiled from the nine volumes of Catawba County Cemeteries which has been produced over the last thirteen years by the Catawba County Genealogical Society. This work represents nearly all the marked graves in the county and a few beyond the borders. The difficulty in locating a specific individual is due only to the fact that nine volumes must be searched.

This index contains all the names appearing on the markers, not necessarily just the deceased. This includes parents and dedications. Whenever maiden names are supplied they are listed together with married names. It contains over 4,100 surnames and 65,000 entries.
