Some accounts claim that John Wilhoit's wife was Margaret "Peggy" Weaver, not Walburga. The following e-mail, written by John Blankenbaker, author of "Beyond Germanna" refutes this claim and proves that John Wilhoit's wife was Walburga Weaver:

The three hundred and nineteenth note is a series on the Germanna Colonies > > A recent note spoke of John Wilhoit and his wife Margaret "Peggy" Weaver. > John Wilhoit was the son of Johann Michael Willheit and his wife Anna Maria > Hengsteler. Margaret "Peggy" Weaver was said to be the daughter of Peter > Weaver and Mary B. Huffman. (The source for this may have been Germanna > Record 13, page 50.) > > Just the simplest of time lines shows that the above statement concerning > Margaret Weaver could not be true. She would be younger than some of her > children. > > The true facts were worked out in an article in Beyond Germanna, v. 6, n.3 > (May 1994). A summary is provided here. > > John Willheit and wife Burga attended the Hebron Lutheran Church in Culpeper > Co., VA on Easter Sunday in 1776. They appear in the list of communicants. > The names adjacent to John and Burga were George Utz, Sr.(son of the 1717 > immigrant), wife Mary (Kaifer) and Henry Aylor, wife Anna Margaret. Henry > Aylor was born in 1718 and the other three were thought to have been born in > the 1720's. Thus John Willheit was probably the son, born 1713, of the > immigrant Michael Willheit. Usually people sat with others of the same age. > Also, the grandsons of Michael Willheit who were named John had wives whose > names do not suggest the name Burga. > > On the first Sunday after Easter in 1778, the name Burga Wilheit was > recorded again in the church Register confirming that the name really did > exist. The name Burga is unusual at the Hebron Lutheran Church. Burga is, of > course, a nickname for Walburga or Waldburga. In the Virginia records there > is one other record of a similar name. The list of fifty imported Germans > which Spotswood used to partial payment for a patent of land includes the > family, Joseph Wever, Susannna Wever, Hans Frederick Wever, Maria Sophia > Wever, and Wabburie Wever. Except for the name Wabburie, the family is known > in Germany. This suggests that Wabburie was born in 1717, at sea or, at > least, in transit from Germany. Wabburie is another nickname for Walburga. > > So we have these facts: John Willheit married Burga (i.e., Walburga). The > only Walburga in the Second Colony is Walburga Wever (Weaver). He was born > in 1713 and she was born in 1717. > > The Hans Frederick Wever, above, was actually Hans Dietrich Wever (from the > German records). The Dietrich became Dieter, Teter, Peter. Thus Walburga > Weaver was a sister of Peter Weaver, the 1717 immigrant, and not the > granddaughter of Peter. > > Mrs. Wever was Susanna Klaar, the sister of Michael Klaar (Clore). Joseph > Wever died early on in Virginia though his arrival in Virginia is recorded. > Susanna married Jacob Crigler and, after he died, she married Nicholas Yager. > > The name Wever is often rendered as Weber or in America as Weaver. > John Blankenbaker > Beyond Germanna > PO Box 120 > Chadds Ford, PA 19317 > >
