On the third day of the archaeological dig of the Alexander graveyard at the site of the Robert Junkins Garrison House on Scotland Parish Road in York (August 21-23, 1990), Edward Junkins and Edward Maybe of the Kittery Water District stopped to say hello to diggers Kathleen Wheeler, Alan Junkins and Donald Junkins. Pleasantries preceded a woods excursion by the four men to an abandoned cemetery on the edge of a large field east of the Kingsbury Marsh Road where many Junkins Gravestones dating from the 1830s were visible.

Alan Junkins, Ken Junkins and Logan Junkins stand at the baptismal font of Brechin Cathedral where Robert was Christened in 1621. They visited the cathedral in 2006.
