You are probably tired of hearing from me, but my questions is, what information do you have that places their possible burial in Clarke County? Is there specific information that says they should have been buried in Clarke County instead of Loudoun County?

The 1860, 70 and 80 census show Spencer and Catharine Marcus living in Loudoun County. Spencer Marcus does not appear to have owned any land, and he did not leave a will or have any estate settlement recorded in Loudoun. It appears at least some, if not all, of his children were living in Loudoun at the time he died. So this couple lived in Loudoun for about 30 years or more when Catharine died, and about 40 years when Spencer died, but you feel they would be buried in Clarke County instead of Loudoun County.

Mount Airy in Loudoun is the name of the plantation built by Jesse McVeigh in the early 1820ís near Middleburg in Loudoun County. It was held by the McVeigh family until the early 1900ís.

Ebenezer Cemetery - 20421 Airmont Road Bluemont, Virginia
Near the intersection of Ebenezer Church Road and Airmont Road, just east of Bloomfield, in Loudoun County.

Middleburg and Bloomfield are about ten miles apart.
