Germantown Cemetery, Fauquier?
Some links pertaining to the possible location of Germantown Cemetery, Midland, Fauquier County, Virginia.


This describes the Fauquier County Germantown:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germantown,_Virginia

I think this next one gives a Wikipedia copy they saved from a Geocities web page which is no longer available:
http://www.webcitation.org/query?url=http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Thebes/8171/germantown.html&date=2009-10-25+06:22:35

This very interesting article was provided as a source on the first Germantown link above:
http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~vafauqui/germant.htm

This next link is the result of a standard search for Germantown Lake on Maps.Google.com:
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=germantown+lake,+midland,+va&hl=en&ll=38.614691,-77.713079&spn=0.033029,0.052314&sll=39.173162,-77.27165&sspn=0.131082,0.209255&hnear=Germantown+Lake&t=m&z=15

This is a map excerpt I copied from the county assessments website, with notes I added:
http://www.screencast.com/t/D7QN9dfyfzwf

Findagrave.com lists nine interments at Germantown Cemetery, including original colonists such as Peter Hitt (1683-1772), and several Weavers.

The "lost German colony" may have left multiple cemeteries.
Germantown Cemetery and Weaver Family Cemetery may be one and the same, or perhaps not.
Here's another view of the county assessment map, showing three other cemeteries on the southwest side of Germantown Lake:

location of Germantown Cemetery
Tried to respond to your request for a picture of gravestone of Hans Jacob Holtzclaw but was unable to find the cemetery despite consulting three others and driving the area myself yesterday. The Findagrave cemetery location information has inadequate details.

Germantown Cemetery, Fauquier?
Hoping to take the photo you requested at Germantown Cemetery, however initial attempts to find it on the map have been unsuccessful.
Do you know where it is?
