There is also a flat marker placed at the foot of this grave that depicts his first name and military service, however the year of birth on this flat marker is wrong. He was born in 1836, not 1828.

This George W. Clary and the G.W. Clary also listed in this cemetery are the same individual. Again, the birth year on this flat stone is wrong. He was born in 1836.

This is a small metal funeral home type marker placed there by a descendant of this desceased Saluda Clary Connell sometime after the cemetery was restored.
Saluda Clayton Clary married Isaac Thomas Connell, CWS f BCV, p. 126.

In 2003 this overgrown and neglected cemetery was completely restored by Mr. Archer B. Clary, a direct descendant of Pvt. George Washington Clary, and another neighbor and relative, Mr. Roland C. Clary. In October of that year a full military dedication was conducted for this Confederate Veteran by The Old Brunswick Camp #512 - Sons of Confederate Veterans.
