Birth: 1716, Northern Ireland
Death: 1764
Virginia, USA

Mary is the daughter of William McPheeters and Rebecca Thompson McPheeters. It's believed she was born in Northern Ireland.

She was murdered by Indians and there is no gravestone for her, according to the D.A.R. 1934 inventory by the Col. Thomas Hughart Chapter.

Some records say she was born in ABOUT 1716 in Ireland and that she died prior to November 1764. No sources are listed.

TGP added to this site: Mary McPheeters, Birth 1716 in Ireland, Death 29 Sep 1764 in Churchville, Augusta, Virginia with no supporting documents.

The Family History of Col. John Sawyers and Simon Harris and their Descendants," by Madison Monroe Harris and William Randolph Carter, pages 134-35 had data on the Indian Raid and says she was tomahawked.

Hebron Presbyterian Church, 1746 - 1996, compiled in 1996 for the 250th Anniversay of the Church, page 24 says Hugh Young, Alexander Crawford and Mary Crawford were murdered by the Indians in 1764, are known to have been buried at the Glebe Cemetery. They have no markers. No dates are given for them.
