The inscription on Susannah's tombstone is as follows: Here lies the body of Susannah McCrary who departed this life Oct 20., 1800. Aged 73 years. 'My race is run, My life is done, My resting place is here. These stone was got to keep the spot. Least men should dig to near.4' Her married name became McCrary.4 [Mary Berkley 21 6 03 (2).FTW]

The Whitakers were Quakers and Susannah was warned if she married Hugh who was not of the same religion, she would be dealt with severely. She married him and her name was removed from the church roll. She and Hugh, along with her family migrated to the Jersey Settlement, Rowan County, now Davidson around 1749/50.

Hugh received a Granville Land Grant and over the years acquired State Grants. Records in 1778 shows he owned 2205 acres of land from 1 mile below Lexington, north to the Red Hill above the church called Ebenezer. He owned land on each side of Swearing Creek. He was listed in records as a Planter and was also a storekeeper. His family was among the first settlers in this part of the country.

He also had several slaves and he is listed in the Pleas and Quarter Sessions of Rowan County as serving many times on jury, including the supreme court, administrator of many wills, looking after orphans until the next session of court, buying and selling land many times and as the overseer of roads being built.

The roots of the McCrary family were planted deep in this area. Only 1 of the original sons, Boyd, left his area. There are many direct descendants of the original Hugh and Susannah still living in the Rowan/Davidson County area.4
