Jane McCauley McCollum Based on records below, her birth was between 1756 and 1765 Her marriage year (1787) may suggest a year closer to 1765 than to 1756.

Note: This birth date is probable based upon date of marriage. The 1758 date is alleged by applications to the SAR based upon faulty data. Capt. James McCauley in Marion's Brigade in SC was a James McCauley who lived there in the 1770s and 1780, not our JM.

Although the marriage records cited here report the bride's name as Jean McCauley, William McCauley's will gives his daughter's name in 1818 as Jane McCollum. [A close look at the marriage bond also suggests that the name is Jane.]

Death of a motherCathrin Wife of Wm McCauley
October 27, 1800 (Age 44 years)
Address: New Hope Presbyterian Church Old Cemetery Hillsborough, Orange County, North Carolina
Note:

A burial in the Old New Hope Episcopal Church cemetery for a C Mc[Cauley] gives a date of death of 27 Oct 1800. Probably because there is also a Wm McCauley also buried there, this has been taken to be Catherine "Catred" McCauley. However, the 1800 census, taken on 4 August, does not include a female to fit Catherine.

From email of 3 October 2018 from William Burlingame:

"Katherine [Catherine] died in 1800, and her gravestone at New Hope [Presbyterian Old Cemetery] was a small piece of slate with very basic information carved on it. Her burial is attested to by several data items and is hardly remarkable." [See media item "William's Burial Site.pdf"]

Death of a fatherWilliam McCauley
December 20, 1825 (Age 69 years)
Note: 20 Dec 1825 is the date most commonly given for the death of Wm McCauley. Although this would certainly be consistent with a filling of probate in the Feb 1826 court term, there is no known documentation giving an actual date of death. It would have been expected that his death would be published in the Hillsborough Recorder, but all publication dates that might reasonably have contained such a notice no longer exist so far as is known. Nor is there a notice in the Raleigh Register for which there are existing scans for all publications dates for the time in question.
Burial of a fatherWilliam McCauley
after December 20, 1825 (Age 69 years)
Note:

This alleged burial appears to be based upon a memorial tablet in the churchyard of the New Hope Prebyterian Church south of Hillsborough upon which are inscribed the names of congregation members who were in the Revolutionary War. The tablet does not state that those persons were buried there, and the church has no record that Wm McCauley was buried in either the old or the new cemetery.

The so-called "Morrow Papers" state that William was buried "on his own land", while a letter written in 1896 by William M McCauley (grandson of William's brother Mathew who lived on some of his grandfather's land) seemed to state that Mathew and William were both buried in the same cemetery, that being the one currently known as the (Mathew) McCauley Cemetery near University Lake in Carrboro NC. Suffice it to say that no actual burial place has yet been discovered for William.

Residence between 1752 and 1850
