Grave of Patrick Henry's mother

Historic Winton Plantation in Clifford, Virginia.
Sarah Winston Henry, mother of Virginia Founding Father Patrick Henry, is buried in the family cemetery of this property that is now home to the Winton Country Club. It was sold to Mrs. Henry's son-in-law, Col. Samuel Meredith, in 1770, and she spent her last years at Winton. It is on the National Register.
