Historical and Biographical Information

Jane Peake Kirkpatrick was born on November 16, 1940, in Norfolk, Virginia to Capt. Raleigh C. Kirkpatrick and Nan Lee Peake Kirkpatrick. She married John Douglas Wall on August 7, 1966, in Virginia Beach and later relocated to Fairfax County, Virginia.

Jane K. Wall was an avid researcher and genealogist. Between 1973 and 1977, Wall surveyed 96 church and family cemeteries in Fairfax County. She recorded the names of each tombstone on 3x5 index cards. Wall donated her research material to Fairfax County Public Library’s Virginia Room where it quickly became a valuable resource to researchers and genealogists. In 1983, the Fairfax County History Commission presented Wall with the Distinguished Service Certificate in recognition of her cemetery survey work.

Wall was a founding member and treasurer of the Fairfax Genealogical Society. In the mid-1980s, the society undertook a gravestone transcription project built from Wall’s initial work. The society updated Wall’s surveys in addition to surveying other cemeteries that she had not included. The result was a 6 volume set of books published between 1994 through 1999 entitled Fairfax County, Virginia Gravestones which contained transcriptions for over 330 burial locations.

In the early 1980s, Wall moved to Cookeville, Tennessee. She died on September 22, 2001 in Putnam County, Tennessee after complications from cancer.
