RE: Edna Sanford of Westmoreland
Thank you for the information on Edna. Your knowledge for this line of Sanfords is so vast I didn't consider that Edna's place of burial was simply unknown.

Do you know how Roberta Fairfax Sanford and Daughter Sanford can both be born so close to each other (in late 1993)? Is it possible that Roberta and Daughter are the same person?

BTW, a Virginia birth record has a daughter of Henry & Edmonia Sanford as being born on 15 Nov 1893 in Montross. Do you know who this is?

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:
Jessie here:

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.

RE: Sanfords
Dal, here is what Glenwood has on the Sanfords - should have thought about providing this in the first place:

Martha Sanford
date interred: 8 Aug 1928
age at death: 77 years 8 months zero/unknown days

John Sanford
date interred: 22 Jan 1917
age at death: 66 years

both buried in the same 8 foot plot.

Memorial 68789382 Pvt Geo W Dunaway
Hi. Dan J. bigfrenchguy gave me your name and thought you would know more on Pvt George W. Dunaway. Dan J. has a memorial for Pvt George W. Dunaway Memorial 68789382 and has put a bio there. I was just wondering if you would have anything else on him or his family or parents?
Thanks, Shirley :)
