Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love cemeteries. I will explore cemeteries to search for relatives and neat stones. Sometimes I will search for the grave of someone I read about.

As to any photos I have put up: Please contact me through email if you'd like a copy as I can email you a scan of it. And do tell me how you are related, as we may be cousins!

Names on my mother's side: Speacht/Specht, Mercier, Howard, Steiner, Michaels, Reich and Williams, and most of them were from Frederick County Maryland.

My father's parents were first generation Americans, their parents being Irish immigrants. Names on his side are: Flynn, Kane, Gary and McDonough. They were all from the Baltimore area.

RE: Thank you!
You are most welcome, Shelley. I have the same wonderful experience of finding my relatives' memorials on Find A Grave with photos, and it is so helpful, not to mention so nice to see a stone when I didn't even know where to look for a great grandparent or great great aunt.
I left Maryland for the summer with a box of flash drives full of photos in my suitcase. I don't have a computer of my own, so I haven't been able to upload any to Find A Grave. That's been a bit frustrating.
Stay well. I wish you all the best.
yours,
Ava

Germantown Cemetery, Midland, Fauquier County, Virginia
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:

RE: Germantown Cemetery, Fauquier?
Shelley, thanks for your quick reply. As you may know, Virginia likes to be very conservative with highway numbers, recycling them all over the place. You find roads marked Route 643 everywhere with no possible relationship to each other. However I do now see online where Licking Run crosses another Rt 643 (not near Meetze Rd and Germantown Lake where I had been looking) so maybe I'll get lucky when I drive over there at lunchtime. --Edwin

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?

RE: Susie E. Veihmeyer's husband
I'm afraid Albert is not buried with her. She is buried in her parents plot along with her siblings. Albert Veihmeyer is not mentioned on FindaGrave (yet).
