Family Cemeteries

Everyone knows this great line from many a ghost story: “They moved the head stones but left the bodies”, in the case of Lake Norman its not a tall tale.

Duke Power moved multiple family cemeteries to make way for Lake Norman, however in some cases, and only after obtaining permission from family descendants, only the headstones were moved while the remains were not disturbed.
