About

Lw1963This site is dedicated to the family of Luther Samuel Zirkle (1871-1942) and Bessie Jordan Will (1879-1964). They were born and lived in Shenandoah County, Virginia, and they were married on April 25, 1900 at Mount Clifton Methodist Church, in Mount Clifton, Virginia.

The Zirkle and Will families share common roots with many of the earliest settlers of the Shenandoah Valley. It’s our hope that we can use this site to celebrate our combined heritage and the memories of our Valley ancestors.

This site is owned and maintained by Larry Allen Will, Jr.

Note: The photo here is from about 1963, and shows me with my father Larry Allen Will, grandmother Ruby Pearl Zirkle Will, and great-grandmother Bessie Jordan Will Zirkle.
