The history and formation of Wilkes County, NC must be kept in mind while researching Wilkes County, NC cemeteries. 

Wilkes County was initially formed in 1778 from parts of Surry County, NC and Washington District (now Washington County, Tennessee).

In 1799, the northern and western parts of Wilkes County became Ashe County. In 1841, parts of Wilkes County and Burke County were combined to form Caldwell County. In 1847, another part of Wilkes County was combined with parts of Caldwell County and Iredell County to become Alexander County. In 1849, additional parts of Wilkes County and Caldwell County were combined with parts of Ashe County and Yancey County to form Watauga County. Numerous boundary adjustments were made thereafter, but none resulted in new counties.
