Highland Cemetery Gravestone Photographs

During 2000, the Friends of the Highland Cemetery documented the cemetery as it is today. The perimeter was videotaped and remaining gravestones were photographed. Volunteer Angie Feldsien has provided copies of her photos for on-line viewing.

The photos are organized alphabetically on the following pages. Click on the icon or text link to view the full photo. The full photos will take 10-60 seconds to load depending on your internet connection speed.

For more information, the Highland Cemetery registry and Debbie Boe's transcription of the Highland Cemetery provide details about Highland cemetery burials and gravesites. Kevin Geraghty's Histories of the Dakota County Irish includes genealogical data for most of the families represented here.
