Dr. Cyrus McCormick (1804-1861) was the 10th child of Francis McCormick (B 1734)who married Ann Purviance/Province, and was the grand-son of Dr. John McCormick of Jefferson Co., WV. Do not get this Cyrus McCormick mixed up with the Cyrus McCormick (B1845) that was the son of Dr. Cyrus' brother, Francis (1801-1872). This Cyrus was the cadet at VMI, and also a doctor in Berryville.
Dr. Cyrus, Sr.'s will was written 7/26/1860 & proved 28 Jan 1861 [CC WB E, Pg 80 & 368] According to the Grace Episcopal Church Registers Dr. McC. died on the 19 Jan 1861, aged 56, and was buried at Cool Spring, the McCormick home.
These McCormicks re-used the same given names (with no middle names to distinguish them) over & over in the family, so it can be VERY confusing.
Hope this is of help. Mary Thomason-Morris, Archivist, Clarke Co. hist.
