RE: Halterman You are very WELCOME. I had to look on Google Maps to find the cemetery. I drive by that Church every day and never knew there was a cemetery. I looked up Churches in Fishersville, Virginia and none came up. So I opened up google map of fishersville, after spotting a cemetery a few blocks from the Church, I landed the little yellow guy on the road and drove the google way, found it. I took my grandchildren with me and my oldest "Found It". Yeah, an All Win Situation. I hope you got my message on Walter. My heart ached when I found out how he died. Sorry I wasn't able to help you there.
Amelia Balderson I added a picture of what I believe to be your Amelia Balderson. The marker lists her as Millie Bolderson, but the dates are correct, and the typos an not too far off. Hope it is the correct one.
RE: Sanfords No other Sanfords are listed in that plot. You may have seen that I stumbled across George and Jessie Sanford (both born around 1860) in another part of the cemetery on a search I was doing for another family. I figured you may also be interested in them and created memorials for each of them. Let me know if you want to take those memorials over. George is here: http://bit.ly/1SzsVrg Jessie here: http://bit.ly/1R6NW7l
BTW, it's not clear George was actually interred since a date of death was never entered on the stone but I could probably find out from the cemetery records. Let me know if you want me to look that up.
