Largent Cemetery (aka Powell-Largent), Forks of Capon, WV.

Lat:3924.274N; Lon:07825.645W.


Location just southeast of Forks of Capon on Rt.45/7.

I'm currently in the process of listing all the people in this cemetery. Then names and dates are taken from the photos that I took on the day I went to the cemetery. A "stone" is just a river stone; a headstone is a stone that I couldn't read on the photos, but I will put the names and dates down when I physically return to the cemetery to verify them.
