Jacob Prickett

Here is a reconstructed version of Jacob’s fort. It was built to provide refuge against Indian raid. I cannot be certain and I am still looking for verification, but I am of the opinion that George Washington probably stayed at this fort on his return from “Fort Necessity”. This reconstructed fort is a West Virginia State Park.

    As I was researching ancestry, I found out that Captain Jacob Prickett, Sr is my 8th great uncle on my Paternal Grandmother’s side. So honored to have him as part of our family!!!
