Virginia E. Moyer McGinty
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 22, 1898
Death: Dec. 30, 1947

Virginia E. Moyer was born in Pennsylvania, and died in San Francisco, California. She married Edward Michael McGinty sometime between the 1910 and 1920 U.S. Federal Census. They were probably married in Colorado, possibly California.

Virginia was the daughter of the Rev. William Garges Moyer of the Methodist-Episcopal Church. He later retired from serving with that church. Virginia's mother was Anna Virginia Williams, born 1871, died 1903. Anna Virginia Williams was referred to as "Ginny" in the family, and Virginia E. was referred to as "Virgie".

Virginia E. and Michael Edward McGinty did have one daughter who was born Virginia M. McGinty. She was born on Oct 13 1917 in San Francisco, California. She died in January of 1921 of unknown causes. She is buried in Cypress Lawn Memorial Park in Colma, San Mateo County, California. There is no headstone.

(Part of an E-mail I sent to another close relative):

"Aunt Virginia was all three of the brothers (Bill, Ken, and My Dad's) favorite Aunt, and Uncle Mac was quite a character, loved by one an all. You might remember, Aunt Virginia's was living with her father and step-mother in Denver, went out to eastern Colorado about 40 miles away to the Bennett/Strasburg area to visit my Grandmother - her sister Cora - and my Grandfather, Alonzo Witt Mertel. She was miserable, because she was in love with Uncle Mac, who was a Catholic, and her Dad, a very strict Methodist-Episcopal Minister (who came from a long line of Mennonites don't ask me why he converted, I have no idea why) was having a fit over her wanting to marry a Catholic. Well my grandfather, Alonzo Witt, said, "Well Virgie, if you love him and aren't going to be happy without him, then just go ahead and marry him!" And she did just that and was quite happy. They had one child, also named Virginia, who died at a very young age. I have tracked down all three of their graves in California. I don't know if her father ever spoke to my grandfather again. I doubt he performed the ceremony either."
