|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Elijah Clarke Memorial State Park, 2959 McCormick Highway Lincolnton, GA 30817. Located 7 miles northeast of Lincolnton on U.S. Hwy. 378. The graves of Elijah and Hannah Clarke were first moved from their original burial places near Graball, Georgia (10 miles North) to a site on the Community House Grounds in Lincolnton, Georgia in 1952 to prevent inundation by the Clark Hill Lake. Following the establishment of Elijah Clark Memorial State Park by Legislative enactment, the graves were removed to the present site in 1955 by special dispensation of the Army Corps of Engineers. The grave site is an enclosure with historical marker just inside the park grounds. A museum is also housed in a period log cabin near the memorial.
