According to Civil War Soldiers from Brunswick County, Virginia, a Clarke Family Cemetery contains the remains of Pvt. James H. Clarke, his parents Joshua Clarke and Susan (-) Clarke, and his son Joseph Massenberg Clarke. Although Dr. Pritchett does not say so, possibly James' brother, Pvt. George Washington Clarke, is here, too. Because James' son Horace Atwell Clarke IS here, the above individuals are presumably buried in this Clarke Family Cemetery, in the several unmarked graves, CWS f BCV, pp. 104-5.
