Comments:

Hackney Cemetery, Jackson Co., West Virginia

Dates in Red are not inscribed on the tombstone and have either been calculated based on death date or are as a result of research on the individual.

Comments from our volunteers who contributed this information, Charlotte & Steve Iman:

"The cemetery appears to receive routine attention, although the grass was tall, no small trees were present, The absence of trees etc.  indicates it is being maintained.  Seventeen graves were located, eleven were identified with markers bearing information.  Four were marked with field stones. Two Funeral Home markers were present, but no information was present."
