the only Virginia Cooper at the Enon and pretty sure the foot stone left there has a B for middle name maybe E my daughter lives just a couple of miles from there and she can check for sure, the reason why I'm looking into it is because her grave is called the whitches grave and back then they did believe in them, I'm trying to prove to the kids around there that she was a normal person the reason why they call it that I think is because her grave is the only one that the head stone faced away from the church and it surrounded by a gate with rods in ground (the story goes they are placed there so she won't get back out) Silly I think but that's how the story goes i been there 3 times and have pictures of it but the pictures are a few months ago and her head stone now is gone which I think is sad, there is a site I found if you type in the Enon Church it will take you to a site of the church and it goes back to the 1800's of the history of the church and there are alot of Cooper's that went there, I wanted the date of her birth and daeth so that if I ever could I'd replace her head stone, I do love ghost stories but I don't think anyone should take a person's headstone, I'm aslo tracling my family I have over 2,000 names so far, if i come acrossed any of the Maxwell's i let you know or anything I find on Virigina, thank for the info and good luck
Frankie
