Connecting Walvoords & Walvoorts together Past, Present, and Future

Walvoord Cemetery Slideshow

UpdateI have added photos of Walvoord Cemetery that I took on a visit to Cedar Grove in 2003.  The slide show uses controls like a VCR.  To move through the photos more quickly, click the > key.

I hope you enjoy them.  If you have any questions or need a copy of any of these photos, please do not hesitate to ask.  I will (when motivated… yeah right) post some captions with each photo.  Your suggestions are always welcome on how to improve Walvoord History.com.

  1. My paternal grandfather and grand mother are buried in the Walvoord cemetary in Cedar Grove, Wi. They are Dirk Joseph Walford (1854-1903) and Elizabeth Walford (1867-1916) along with Henry infant son 1891 and Arthur-World War Vet 1918? My father was Oscar Walford 1902-1988 and my mother was Dorothy Walford (1903-1990. They are buried in the Wildwood Cemetary in Sheboygan, Wi.
    A thrid counsin once removed advised me that my father Oscar Walford was the grandson of Garret Jan Walford who was married to Hendrika”Henrietta” Harmeling. I find this very confusing. Perhaps you have more info on this. Thank you for your help.

    1. Hi Richard,

      I’ve always wondered about those headstones in Walvoord Cemetery. All I know is that typically “Walford” is an English name. That doesn’t mean that it was not misspelled. If that’s the case, it could be Dutch and related to us. I haven’t run across that name in any other research, but I will try to start looking. If you know of any other clues, please let me know.
