Tombstone Tuesday: Highlands, NC

On my vacation last week, my step-mother-in law took us on a quick tour of the cemetery near their home in Highlands, NC.
Highlands, NC Cemetery
Highlands is a town in Macon County, North Carolina.  Highlands is at latitude 35.052N, longitude -83.196W. It is in the Eastern Standard time zone, and almost due north of Atlanta, just two hours from Hartsfield.
Elevation there is 3,832 feet, and my father-in-law’s house is very near the Eastern Continental Divide. The area is also considered a rain forest, very rare on this side of the Misssissippi. This all makes Memorial Cemetery an incredibly lovely site.
To get to the cemetery: From Highlands, turn on Hwy. 64 towards Cashiers. Go approximately one mile to Memorial Drive on left. Cemetery is just down that road.
At this web site a transcribed Cemetery Survey starts above the road continues down the hill:  http://www.usgennet.org/usa/region/southeast/ncmacon/cemetery/highlands.html
