Hebron Presbyterian Church, 1746 - 1996, compiled in 1996 for the 250th Anniversary 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.

Following the end of a list of burials at North Mountain Burying Ground, the following source contradicts the above book. Others buried at North Mountain (cemetery) but have no markers include William McPheeters (Sr. or Jr. not listed), Rebecca McPheeter and Rachel McPheeters. Bethel and Her Ministers, 1746 - 1974 by Rev. Herbert S. Turner & Rev. James Sprunt, 1974, p 50.

During Oct 1776, Wm McPheeters was one of the signers of a document expressing his opinion that was sent before the Augusta Co. lawmakers that "several companies of militia and freeholders of Augusta, demanded that "all religious denominations within the (VA) Dominion be forthwith put in full possession of equal liberty, without preference or pre-eminence." This was before the 15 Dec 1791 1st amendment to the Bill of Rights (which "prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion..."). American Archives, 5th Series, Vol. 2, p 815.

12-17-11, Just for clarity, I requested a photo of her gravestone (knowing it's not listed on any surveys from the 1900's that I've found), with my fingers crossed, hoping for a miracle 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." It's very unusual for uncovered/outdoors markers this old, to be legible anymore. Few stones this old would survive the elements alone.
