The Lorenzo D. Hill Family Cemetery, which I visited on 20 September 2013, is located across the Guyandotte River from Stone Branch in Logan County, West Virginia. Prior to the War Between the States, Lorenzo Dow Hill was a prominent resident and slave-owner in the Crawley Creek section of Logan County. This cemetery is also noteworthy in that it contains the final remains of numerous African-American residents. The cemetery can be accessed by following Sawmill Road, near Chapmanville.
