Zachariah Taliaferro, born in Amherst County, Va., 1759. At 18 years of age was a private soldier in the Revolution and served to the end of the war as testified by the permit for him to practice law in South Carolina.

After the Revolutionary War he studied law and first practiced in the Virginia courts. Then removed to South Carolina near Pickensville, where he practiced until the courts of that place were abolished 1800.

In 1802 he returned to Virginia, and married Margaret Chew Carter, daughter of John Carter and Hannah Chew, of Caroline County. He settled three miles east of Pendleton, and continued to practice law until 1826, died 1831. He and his wife are buried in the graveyard at this home."
