Augustine Warner Family Cemetery

Warner Hall
Gloucester Co, VA

The ancestral cemetery of the Augustine Warner family sits in a field to the northwest of Warner Hall, surrounded by an ancient brick wall.   The Gloucester County plot of land which contains the cemetery was deeded to the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities at the time of a sale of the estate.  The cemetery remains beautifully maintained by that organization.  Its local President is shown above (middle left in black pant suit)  in the midst of a historical presentation.  

Warner Hall Graveyard was deeded to the APVA about 1902 by my grandfather Alfred Willia Withers who owned Warner Hall at that time.  Warner Hall Graveyard is a vital link in our heritage, as the Warner Family are the Ancestors of George Washington; Robert E Lee and the present Queen of England. The Queen's eighth grandmother was Mary Warner, the wife of Augustine Warner    The Graveyard is in dire need of restoration. The Joseph Bryan Branch will be happy to receive contributions marked Warner Hall Grave Yard.  Send to Joseph Bryan Branch A.P.V.A.  Mail to Joseph Bryan Branch A.P.V.A,  Box 335, Gloucester VA 23061.  Page Laubach Warden
