|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Dedication Service for the Clark Family Cemetery - Saturday, October 15, 2011. The cemetery is located at the corner of Lawyer's Road and Missionary Manor in Campbell County, VA and was part of a plantation of approximately 3,500 acres with John and Mary Moore Clark. They were some of the earliest settlers of what is now Campbell County. The first parcel of land of approximately 1,330 acres was purchased in 1779 and was part of what was then Bedford County and the subsequent land acquisition was for 2,177 acres in 1786. The plantation, known for its lime kiln, extended approximately from where the gravel quarry is now down stream on both sides of Flat Creek approximately two miles distance. An iron fence was erected in 1885 around the cemetery. The iron fence was deemed to be beyond restoration and has been donated to the Old City Cemetery, Lynchburg, VA, where parts of it will be used in future projects which was very appropriate since John Clark was one of the original Trustees of the City of Lynchburg and John Clark was a cousin of John Lynch who donated the land to the Old City Cemetery. The decision was made to replace the iron fence with a stone wall, but restoring the iron gate. The exact location of each grave is unknown as the original tombstones have long ago vanished.
