Hebron Presbyterian Church, 1746 - 1996, compiled in 1996 for the 250th Anniversay of the Church, page 24 says William McPheeters, Rebecca McPheeters and (daughter in law) Rachel (Moore) McPheeters are all buried at the Glebe Cemetery. They have no markers. No dates are given for them.

CW adds: "... his 1773 will names his wife as "Mary," who he apparently married later, after Rebecca Thompson. She was widow of Thomas Peary/Peery/Percy. (Augusta Deed Book 12, p 159, Will Book 5, p 61, and Chalkley's Abstracts Vol 1 p 429.)."

That's Lyman Chalkley's Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia. Various Old Papers, 1760 - 1770, Commission for privy examination of Mary McPheeters, Executrix of Thomas Peevy, deceased, and wife of William McPheeters... Commission dated 21 - 28 Aug 1765.

I requested a photo of his gravestone, with my fingers crossed and received this note: "I have walked and photographed entire cemetery and cleared each grave, and this stone cannot be located. The cows have been in the cemetery for years and have decimated many stones."

Burial: Glebe Cemetery, Swoope, Augusta County, Virginia, USA, NO EXISTING gravestone
