George Hott Sr. Cemetery

Frederick County, Virginia

View of Restored Cemetery

Note from Submitter: Location of cemetery: Follow Route 522 North from Winchester, VA, to Nain, VA, a distance of nearly nine miles. Take Route 654 from Nain to the Pleasant Valley Church and Cemetery (about 7 miles). Turn right onto property of Richard Renner (may have been sold). Follow the cowpath up the hill to the pasture, and on the top of the hill is the old George Hott Sr. Cemetery, which was restored in 1990 by Mary Catherine and Bill Kuykendall, Jack and Sylvia Hott Sonneborn, Jack Andrews, Steve Hott, Eleanor Hott Kinnan, Casey Goodhue and Darrel Woodard. Not too far from there is The Old Stone Church and Cemetery off Route 654. Many of the stones have no markings. There used to be a small stone with a lamb and the name "Mary" inscribed on it, according to Mrs. Renner. Some of the graves were marked with wood. All those markers are gone.
