Death of a maternal grandfatherWilliam McCauley
December 20, 1825
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 maternal grandfatherWilliam McCauley
after December 20, 1825

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.
