The following quote, taken from Pritchett's Civil War Soldiers From Brunswick County, Virginia, is engraved on the back of his stone. “One cannot but be impressed by men like Thomas C. Clary who were prepared to give not only their own lives but the lives of their sons, fighting beside them, in defense of that in which they believed.” by Dr. William McCaddin Pritchett. Pvt. Thomas C. Clary fought through the entire War Between the States with five of his own sons.
See CWS f BCV, pp. 115-16.

Here Mother Lies
This is the wife of Pvt. Thomas C. Clary and the mother of Thomas H. Clary. The death certificate of Thomas H. Clary clearly states his mother's maiden name as “Lucy Kelly”.
States, apparently in error, that the wife of Pvt. Thomas H. Clary was Lucy Wesson, CWS f BCV, p. 115.
On Saturday, April 27th, 2002, The Old Brunswick Camp # 512 - Sons of Confederate Veterans, conducted a headstone dedication at this cemetery for Pvt. Thomas C. Clary.
During the months leading up to the event, Tracy Clary, along with the assistance of fellow SCV members, restored the terribly overgrown cemetery.
