(click on photograph for larger image)

Above are two photographs of the Totten family cemetery in Locust Hill, Caswell County, North Carolina. According to a Totten family member there are only four marked graves in this small cemetery. One is that of Jacob T. Van Hook, born 1 Sept 1827 died 15 Apr 1882. His stone is broken and in need of repair.

Jacob T. Van Hook was the son of Kindal Van Hook (c. 1792 - 1880) and Diannah Burton (c. 1795 - 1880). He married Nancy W. Totten, daughter of John C. Totten (c. 1800 - 1862) and Dorcas M. Harrelson (c. 1806 - c. 1892).

Jacob T. Van Hook and Nancy W. Totten were married c. 19 July 1865 (bond date).

  1. My husband is related to the Tottens of Caswell County. We would like to learn the address of this cemetery. Is there an index of Confederate Soldiers gravesites?
