Joseph and Mary Jane Coffey Fitzgerald

Joseph was the son of Moses W. and Mary Ann (Polly) Coffey Fitzgerald of Virginia, and probably Nelson Co. He was born Dec. 31, 1861 and died in Nelson Co. in 1937. He married Mary Jane Coffey, a daughter of Robert Wesley and Elizabeth A. Coffey Coffey on Jan. 4, 1884* in Nelson Co.

I have three children for Joseph and Mary: Minnie, born 1870, died Jun. 8, 1930, married J. Elmer Taylor, born 1900 in Virginia; Leona (Lonie), born 1898, died Mar. 15, 1924 in Nelson Co. She married Arthur N. Fitzgerald; and Nancy B., born 1902, died 1931.

Joe, Mary Jane, Minnie and Nancy are buried in the White Rock Cemetery in Nelson Co.**

Lonie is buried in the Andy Allen Family Cemetery in Nelson Co.***

I am searching for information about this cemetery. I would like to know exactly where it is and perhaps who else from this family is buried there.

Please contact me at the e-mail address above to add to or correct any of this information, or to help with information on the Allen cemetery.

  2. Debbi, Thanks for adding to Joseph and Mary's family. I have Fitzgerald first cousins who would like me to look for connections to these early Virginia Fitzgeralds.
