Clarke County Virginia

Map of Va: Clarke County Clarke County was formed in 1836 from the eastern portion of Frederick County and it was named for General George Rogers Clark, Conqueror of the Northwest. Except for a minor change in the Clarke-Warren border in 1860, its boundaries have remained unchanged. Clarke County was home to a number of noted individuals in the colonial period, including; Thomas Lord Fairfax, who made his home at Greenway Court (in the corner of Clarke, Warren, and Frederick counties, in 1745; Robert Carter, Fairfax's agent, at Millwood; and Benjamin Borden, who migrated from New Jersey to take up "Borden's Great Spring Tract" adjacent to Greenway Court Manor in 1734.

GREEN HILL CEMETERY TOMBSTONES AND BURIALS, BERRYVILLE, CLARKE COUNTY, VIRGINIA (Fourth Edition - 2011) Donald R. and Mary L. Royston. Fourth edition, 2011, 11 x 8 1/2 format, ii, 356 pages, map. The authors have updated their survey of this major Clarke County cemetery and have faithfully recorded ca. 8,500 burials. This brings the cemetery records up to date as of 2011. In addition to the recording of the stones, hours were spent by volunteers from the Clarke County Historical Association combing through the journal records of the cemetery and copying the names of people interred there who had no grave marker. Approximately one thousand of these previously unrecorded graves are included in this new edition. Included for each entry (when available on the tombstone or family plot) is the name of the deceased, date of birth, date of death, cemetery lot number, burial date, and miscellaneous notes. The latter includes any recorded military service, relationships (e.g., wife of, husband of, etc.) and age at time of death, if noted. Arranged alphabetically throughout for easy reference.
