Highland Line Cemetery is located on the East Half of Lot 6, Concession 9 in the Township of Dalhousie in the County of Lanark and Province of Ontario, one mile Southeast of the Village of McDonalds Corners. Neil McNEIL originally obtained this land from the Crown in 1825.

The earliest recorded interment is March 26, 1836, but no doubt there were interments before as this grave is some distance from either fence and the area was settled in 1821.

This book includes transcriptions of all memorial stones that were present in the summer of 1977 plus an Addendum of persons who are buried in the cemeteries for whom no stones remain erected today. Some stones may no longer exist nor be easily readable today. The transcribers published the results in 1978.

Married women are Indexed under both their married and maiden names. The persons recorded in the Addendum are also included in the Index.

This cemetery was originally recorded by Robert Sargeant & Roberta Sargeant in June l977. Rechecked by Robert Sargeant, Iva Headrick, Roberta Sargeant, Joyce Nisbet in September 1977.
