Thanks for your message, it was a simple misread (on my part) of his year of death (1918 vrs. 1948).
I have corrected his memorial and added a little more detail. Thanks, Jim

Hi Connie, It appears that there is no headstone for Virginius Perry. I believe Virginius is buried to the left of Alice Perry Sears or between the Ramsay and Bozard headstones. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Irene

You are quite welcome, happy to be of assistance.
|Anne Mount West||James J R Magee|
Hi Connie, The picture you posted for James R Magee  actually belongs to Capt. James J R Magee  whose memorial has the same death information as is on the stone. Thanks for taking the pictures. The cemetery is so large and pictures help me to make the burial database more complete. Anne Mount West

If you would like an emailed copy please provide me with your email address by emailing me at email@example.com. I provide bio info on all seven persons buried in that little graveyard. I think you'll find the Woodhouse information "unearthed" very interesting.
|sagesteps||RE: Margaret Henley grave|
Wish you well in your family history research. You have probably already done this, but it seemed to me that ancestry.com had family trees for Woodhouse ancestors that might provide you with all of the information you need to at least get started with names. It would take time to go down each branch from the Major Jonathan Woodhouse who was born in 1750, but would certtainly be doable.
The creator of the Margaret Henley Woodhouse FindaGrave page has provided me with sourced information that gives me every reason to believe that the little private cemetery I visited two days ago is the correct location. I even have the names of all seven persons buried there. The Old Plantation House lived in from 1834-1949 by John Paul Woodhouse descendants is definitely the refaced home (refaced in 1954)I visited to gain access to that private cemetery.
When I have some time in the next day or so I plan to write a narrative of all that I have learned and share copies with the present occupant(s) of that house (the present "caretaker" should appreciate knowing the names of the seven persons buried there) as well as Barbara Woodhouse Henley, our Virginia Beach Council Woman.
If you'd like a copy, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your assistance, Dr. George H. Schauer

Using Ancestry.com family tree information for Henrietta Marie Woodhouse Cox, (1898-1972) it appears that there is no direct link to Margaret Henley Woodhouse. Henrietta died in Bowie, TX.
They both can be traced back to a Major Jonathan Henley born in 1750, but those "tree branches" going back in history arrive at him from different directions. One could use Ancestry.com to lay it out on a chart, but all that would reveal is what distant cousins your ancestors were. One thing was clear in making the comparisons going back in history as I did, you are very, very likely not a direct descendent of Margaret Henley Woodhouse. The family tree that would connect you to her would have very, very long branches.
Still wondering how you, or the creator of Margaret's FindaGrave site (whom I have emailed), determined that this little private cemetery is her final resting place. It may be, but there is no grave marker (despite the photo that popped up on her site today), and it seems to me more likely that one of the many other hidden little private cemetery grounds in the Red Mill area may be where she was buried, perhaps in an unmarked grave.

According to caretaker none of the grave markers photographed are for Margaret Henley Woodhouse. I am still awaiting feedback from the inquiries made by Barbara Woodhouse Henley. More research is needed to find the exact burial location.

I received and accepted the invitation to take the photo of Margaret Henley Woodhouse's grave marker on Hedgelawn in Virginia Beach. I live nearby and have bicycled past that locked and fenced private cemetery many times. Access cannot be gained from the street, but I learned the resident of the house behind the cemetery could grant access. Spoke with him at his front door at length. He said there was no-one to his knowledge, although he admitted he may not know all there is to know, by that name buried there. He did give me a couple of names that he knew from grave marker etchings. I remember his mentioning the name Stephens (Stevens?), but no known Henley or Woodhouse connection. I have talked by phone to VB city councilwoman Barbara Woodhouse Henley. She couldn't recall anyone by that name, or the husband of Margaret (Jonathan), but did say that just by chance she was planning to attend a genealogical program at the Senior Resource Center in Creeds today with local family genealogy experts. She will make inquiry on my behalf, and said she expected to speak with a Mrs. Estes, who she said was the most knowledgeable about the Henley and Woodhouse histories. I did take some good photos in the little private cemetery on Tuesday, but think it best until I hear back from Barbara Henley before submitting. I knew this would be a challenge. I wasn't disappointed.
