|Bio and Links|
I'm hooked on finding our roots, also scrapbooking and reading good books.The major last names in our family tree are Burke/Pierce/McKay/McDonald. While studying the roots of our family tree, I discovered that my father was adopted into the Burke family. His bio-parents are Evelyn Vonderwerth and his father is Ernest Martin. I would love to find out more about the Vonderwerth/Martin family from Detroit, wayan county, Michigan. As I travel back to Michigan and here in Northern Virginia (Winchester)I stop in different cemeteries. |
I work across the street from Mount Hebron Cemetery, Winchester, VA and like to spend my lunch hour at the cemetery walking and taking pictures.

Christy thanks to you we found the resting place of my father earl w Jenkins sr.i am his son earl w Jenkins jr.i have been looking along time for his resting place.my wife final loacated it on ancestry.com.i am from edinburg,va I was raised by my grand parents.i have been trying to locate my aunt doris,my uncle jim and see iff they are buried in Winchester.thanks again so much for what you do.i am a member of the find a grave family also.
I went to the cemetery today but didn't have a lot of time. I did find Darothy Fawcett (not Dorothy!), but I wasn't really looking for her; just happened to stumble across her looking for someone else! A nice surprise!
Norwood McKenzie is the one I was hoping to find; he's in an easy spot really close to the office, but he must have a flat marker, because the woman from the office went with me when I couldn't find him, and we were where he should have been. Unfortunately, the snow covering the markers now is frozen, so I couldn't just push it off the flat stones like I did last time I went up.
I'll be back in Winchester on the 26th, so I'll look for anything you and JT have left behind then.
|JT||RE: Photo Requests for Cemetery: Mount Hebron Cemetery|
Ah. I see. I'm thinking these are the same ones that I claimed awhile back and reported problems I'd had in locating the graves. No worries. I've already given them my best shot. Hopefully someone else will have better results.

Oh, ok Christy; I didn't know about that website! Super! I'll go look for some, but don't claim anything 'til I get home and tell you whether or not I found them, ok?
When I was there 2 weeks ago everything was so covered with snow I couldn't find anything, even uncovering everything in the area where they were supposed to be. I'm hoping they're uncovered now, as I only have about an hour and a half or so to search between appts at the Stephens City Vet Clinic.
I'll let you know how I do. Thanks!
I was at Mt Hebron 2 weeks ago and checked with the office about Mr. Taylor. They have no record of him with those dates, so unless his dates are listed incorrectly, he isn't there.
Just thought you should know before you hunt; meant to record the problem earlier but forgot. Remembered today because I'm going to be in the area tomorrow and was going to look for some of the others, but I see you've claimed them so I'll go somewhere else! lol
|Pamela Collins||RE: Daren Neil Walkerow|
Thanks for getting back to me. I found out several years ago "through the grapevine" that he passed away. I didn't know for sure until I saw the picture you posted. Thanks so much for doing this. He meant a lot to me. We dated for almost a year in 1986 and I had been pregnant and miscarried in my 4th month. I often just wonder what happened to him at such a young age. I was just so sad to hear that he passed away. I'm still looking for his twin brother. We were good friends back then. I will be able to get info. from him if I can find him. I believe Daren died in Medina, Ohio from what I can tell from records I have found. He has family in Virginia which I assume is why he is buried there. Thanks so much for what you do.
|Ruth (Wilson) Lowell||RE: Oather Wilson|
Thank You so much for the transfer. I really appreciate it.
|Honoring our ancestors||RE: Ernest Martin|
Yes, that is fine. Just add a note that the photo was taken in August 2013 by Julie F. Witkowski
Thank you so much for your hard work in finding this grave. It takes real dedication and I can't tell you how much this means to our family. Is it ok with you if I add this picture to our family tree both our personal one and the one on Ancestry . com with your name on it of course. God Bless Christy
