I have always found cemeteries to be soothing places. Find A Grave is a lovely idea very well carried forward, a compassionate and tender community.|
If you have information about any memorial I manage, please get in touch via public message or through the Edit tab. Please include sources, to help researchers.
ALEXANDRIA NATIONAL CEMETERY in Alexandria, Virginia: I have been researching this cemetery for several years and will be happy to help you learn more about anyone who is (or was previously) buried there.
UNKNOWNS: Please leave flowers and notes for the Civil War unknowns and others I have documented. Under "Search Contributor's Records" on this screen, enter "Unknown" in the Last Name field.
COLONISTS OF THE 1600s: Honoring the memories of our early colonial ancestors is important to me. If you have further details about the men who are buried in the Bloody Brook Mass Grave, please let me know.
SPECIAL PROJECT: Methodist Protestant Cemetery in Alexandria, Virginia, especially the south section, is a special project. Please contact me with any information about the people buried there.

For some reason I can't delete the photo so I sent a note to the caretaker of the site.

I was delighted to see that you have include my great-grandmother, Sarah Shapera Silverburg in your research. I have seen the grave once many years ago, but now living in Colorado I'm not able to return.
If you are in the area and can help me, or know of someone who can help me, for more information I would be delighted.
It would be so helpful to have a photo of the grave marker.
Also, she was married to William Silverburg/Silverberg, who I believe may also be in this cemetery. He was born about 1870 and died about 1895.
Their son was Harry Silverburg(b.Aug. 1892; d. 12/6/1943) is in this cemetery, according to his death certificate. He was born in Pittsburgh.
Harry's wife is also in this cemetery. She is Bertha Hyman Silverburg Orringer. (b. 9/15/1895 in Atlantic City and d. 8/26/75 in Wheeling, WV).
FYI -- Israel Shapera and his wife Gussie Toby Shapera (who are on this link) is brother of Sarah Shapera Silverburg. The Shaperas immigrated from Pidkamin, Ukraine about 1890.
I do have photos of Sarah, Bertha and Harry.
Getting photos of the grave markers would be terrific, and if William is also there, I'd love to know that
Thanks so much!!
|Tricia Petitt||Cornelia Lee Turberville Stuart|
Mrs. Bee - I am trying to correct information on several of the Find a Grave websites for my family. Cornelia Lee Turberville was born here at Leeton, my family's home in which I live. She was born to Henrietta Lee (Richard Henry Lee & Anne Gaskins) and George Richard Lee Turberville (not his cousin Col. George Lee Turberville). This is a common error due to the close names and relationships. Corbin-Turberville-and Lees married in every generation so we are pretzels. Cornelia inherited a portion of Leeton Plantation and she named it Chantilly after her grandfather's plantation in Westmoreland Co. This Chantilly was in Fairfax Co and was burned by the Union army and the city got it's name from this portion of plantation. Cornelia married her cousin, Charles Calvert Stuart - hence her last name being Stuart on her tombstone. Cornelia's brother was George Richard Lee Turberville, II and he was my 3rd. great grandfather - buried in my cemetery in my yard at Leeton. I wrote the 2 volume set of books called The Turbervilles of Virginia. My question to you is will you let me take possession of this page on Turberville? I have photos and documentation I can add to the pages. Thanks so much - Tricia Petitt

Above at St. Johns United Church of Christ Cemetery in Hamburg, VA. Could they be William Thomas Myers and his wife, Maggie A. Newland? Several of their children are buried at St. Johns. William Thomas and Maggie (and his second wife, Effie Funkhouser) are buried at Zion Lutheran Church Cemetery, also in Hamburg.
|Ree Tanner||RE: Doris Meeks|
Thanks for your hard work on our Alexandria ancestors. My Mom's lines are paternal and maternal and the paternal are Nugents. There were two Nugents lines in Old Town in the late 1880's. One from my line from John Nugent and the other was Owen Nugent. I now believe they were separate and not related but did attend St Marys' at the same time.
One of my cousins, who was a St Mary's parishioner and requested a search from St Mary's in the 1990's and I have that in PDF form.
You have a Bridget Nugent in your St Mary's Records. Based on the PDF records she was Bridget Rooney and the first wife of Owen.
Let me know how to send those PDF records.
|Betty Frain||RE: Irene and Quillie Bell|
Thank you for the additional information!
|Glenn Swarbrick||RE: Madeline Madden|
Thanks. I'll let you know if I find anything.
|Glenn Swarbrick||RE: Madeline Madden|
Thanks so much for your reply. I will do as you suggest. The little girl I am trying to find was born c. 1913 so would have been 10 years old when she was killed in 1923. Thanks again. Glenn
