Location

Fulks Run, Rockingham County, Virginia. Located at Dwight Hoover's place, formerly Orie Hoover's. From route 259, turn left at Fulks Run Grocery onto Route 612. After about 2 miles, turn right onto route 817 toward Mountain Grove Church of the Brethren. After you pass the church, take the first left onto Route 817. Dwight Hoover's lane to the log house is about the first right, going along the stream. As you face his restored log house, the cemetery is to the left on the hill under trees.

Notes

In 1967 J. Robert Swank noted "There are twelve to fifteen other graves." In 1999 Patricia Turner Ritchie noted "There are also several river rocks marking graves of at least 4 adults and 2 children." Notes in "Remarks" column were taken from Patricia Turner Ritchie's book in 1999.
