Marcellus Jerome Clarke
Birth: Aug. 25, 1845
Simpson County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Mar. 12, 1865
Louisville
Jefferson County
Kentucky, USA

Clarke (Clark) was best known under his non-de-guerre of "Sue Mundy." He enlisted as a Confederate soldier in 1861 and served in the 4th Kentucky Infantry, CSA, and Morgan's Kentucky Cavalry. In 1863 he became probably the most famous of the Kentucky Confederate guerrillas. His nom-de-guerre, along with his long hair and delicate features, gave rise to the current newspaper stories that he was a woman warrior. He was ambushed and captured in March 1865, and taken to Louisville for hanging. Clarke was originally buried in the Hopkins family cemetery, and was moved in 1914 by the UCV Capt. D. C. Walker Camp to Greenlawn Cemetery. There were skeletal, clothing, and hair remains when the coffin was opened by the coroner for inspection. (bio by: Geoff Walden)
