Introduction ...

Since our focus is on geography, we don't have any burial or interment information. Nor do we have any contact information for the Pilgrim Rest Cemetery. For information of that nature, we suggest the Find-A-Grave<1> website: The Pilgrim Rest Cemetery (FAG ID #2247826)

We have organized the cemeteries in our Gazetteer based upon a problem that we had while working on our own genealogy. We found an ancestor that we believed to have been buried in one cemetery was actually buried elsewhere. We discovered that his burial had been refused at the last moment and the family had scrambled to make new arrangements. By looking at nearby cemeteries, the surrounding communities and in newspapers of the period, we were finally able to locate his burial site. Should you find yourself in the same situation, we hope that our Gazetteer helps you discover your lost ancestor.
