John Taylor and his wife Catherine Pendleton settled at Macpelah about 1754. (approximately 2 miles south of Townsville, Vance Co., NC, on the West side of NC 39. This is the old plantation of the Taylor's. It is still in the Taylor family ( May 2000) "though not as large a property holding now as it was then." Rives Manning writes, " I have been to "Macpelah" and have seen the cemetery. Many of the graves are not marked but some are. I made a diagram of the cemetery and then obtained a copy of a diagram done in 1838 by Memucan Hunt. Many of the ones he listed are not on my list, either because the stones have been destroyed/knocked down or there were no stones. Some on his list probably came from Bible references, etc., not from stones.
