My great uncle, Calvin Hetrick said there were 42 graves in the cemetery but didn't know the names of all of them. There are field stones that are worn completely smooth, Uncle Calvin and his sister Essie Hetrick Freeman were the last of the Hetricks to live on the homestead and it was sold 1971 and they moved to a retirement home in Martinsburg. They are buried in the Koontz Church Cemetery. My sister and I last visited the cemetery two years ago and some more of the stones had become impossible to read anymore.
