CEMETERIES of HENDERSON COUNTY

* McHANEY CEMETERY *

McHaney Cemetery is an antebellum white family cemetery in southwestern Henderson County. To reach the cemetery, drive south on Luray Road and turn east on Luray Station Road, a new subdivision street. Drive to the end of the street and park. Walk about 300 yards to the northeast, following the line of woods. At one time this cemetery was served by the same access drive as the black McHaney Cemetery, which is in the woods about 500 yards to the southeast.
McHaney Cemetery may have about 18 graves which are visible only as depressions. No graves remain individually marked. There is a memorial marker listing 13 people buried here. At least two graves were individually marked at one time but in 2004 one individual marker, its footstone, and the footstone for a second burial were found leaning against the memorial marker. No other markers or footstones were visible.
David Donahue recorded McHaney Cemetery March 7, 2004.
