Search Wells Family Cemetery (Fort Pickett):

"This family cemetery was located in the vicinity of the intersection of East Parade and East 21st Street in Fort Pickett's cantonment area in what was Tract F-129 owned by
Joseph G. Wells et al. in 1944 (see Table 1 and Figure 1). It is not marked as "relocated" on the 1944 map and not included on Godburn's list of cemeteries relocated to
Butterwood Church (Godburn 1977: Appendix G). Due to heavy impact from the construction of Camp Pickett in this area, it is highly unlikely that any evidence of this cemetery remains. The approximate location is on the boundary of two of the Fort Pickett Cultural Resource Program's archaeological survey areas, neither of which identified any cemetery remains (Boyko and Boyko 2006b; Boyko et al in press #2006.13). The exact location of this the Wells cemetery has not been identified at the time of this survey."
