      The Old Chapel [picture] in Millwood, Clark County, Virginia, where the gravestone of Winnifred Waller Calmes is located. The stone was moved from "The Vineyard" Plantation in 1859. The inscription of the graveston no longer is readable. From early records, however, we know it reads:
      Here lies the body of Winnifred, the wife of Major Marquis Calmes.
      They were joined in wedlock 26 years and had six children.
      She was a loving, virtuous and industrious wife, a tender mother, and kind mistress.
      She departed this life October 6, 1751 Anno Domini.

      She is supposed to have been the daughter of John Waller III of Westmoreland County, son of John Waller II and wife, Dorothy King, who was the son of John Waller I, the immigrant. (Virginia Genealogies, 1891, William & Mary Quarterly, Volume 5 Number 3,

      Thomas H. Pope, a descendant of William B. Calmes of Newberry, South Carolina, and a person who has done much research, writes that Winnifred Waller was the daughter of William Waller, Jr., and that land owned by William Waller, Sr., was adjacent to land granted to Marquis Calmes by Lord Fairfax. Mr. Pope also writes, "Proceedings resulting in the grant of 400 acres to William Waller were commenced after the deaths father, William Waller, Sr., and of one Gerrard Master, an alien, to whome had been granted 800 acres on July 2, 1699. (Patent Book 5, page 237, Cavliers and Pioneers, Nell Marion Nugent, Volume 2, 1666-1695, page 60). William Waller, Sr., died before the land could be divided. When Masters died, title to the entire tract was in him. As an alien, his land would ascheat to the Colongy. William Waller, Jr., and Richard Fassaker therefore petitioned and were granted 400 acres each." (Northern Neck Land Grants, 1694-1742, page 6, page 237, Grant Book 2, page 67).
