Hicks Family Cemetery

Description

The Hicks Family Cemetery, in Arlington County, Virginia, as located between North 22nd Street and Lee Jackson Memorial Highway (Route 29), immediately west of Glebe Road. At some point between June 1959 and "shortly after" 1965, the cemetery's contents (six gravestones) were relocated to Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Herndon, Virginia (Fairfax Survey Number FX1284). Of these gravestones, the only one totally identifiable is that of William H. Hicks, the father of Theodore Hicks, who owned the property when it was destroyed.
