HIETT (Benjamin) FAMILY CEMETERY, near Forks of Cacapon, WV.


Location about .2 miles south of where Rt.9 and Rt.127 intersect on what is known as the Frank Haines Rd. This cemetery sits on private property in the back corner of a large corn field. I have included two photos with this cemetery as the family also owned slaves. The right photo is of the Hiett family cemetery and the right photo is of the slave portion. Both cemeteries are bordered by the same fence.
