Yes, now I see where the Clarke County reference comes in. Your first posting did not reference that record.
The death record from my abstracts of the Clarke County Death Register:
MARCUS, Cath. E.; white female; d. 27 Jun 1888; place of death: near Mt. Airy Mt'in; cause: paralysis; age: 58y; par: not given; place of birth: Loudoun Co.; occupation: not given; status: consort; informant: Spencer MARCUS, husband; pg:l: 161:61
MARQUIS, Jno. L.; white male; d. 13 Feb 1857; place of death: Clarke Co.; cause: scarlett fever; age: 5y; par: Spencer & Catharine MARQUIS; place of birth: Clarke Co.; occupation: cooper; status: married; informant: Spencer MARQUIS, father; pg:l: 104:6
The death record actually states Mt. Air Mt'in, not a town called Mt. Airy.
The 1860 Loudoun census places them in Paris on the Fauquier/Loudoun border. The 1870 Loudoun census places them near Snickersville, which was the original name for Bluemont. The 1880 census places them in the Mercer District, which is just south of Bluemont. Bluemont, on Rt 7 just west of Round Hill, is on the border of Clarke County. Mt. Bluemont to the Ebenezer Cemetery that I listed before, is about 6 miles. So it is quite possible that Spencer and Catharine lived just over the border in Clarke County, but due to previous ties with that area in Loudoun, they were buried in the Ebenezer Church in Loudoun.
