      Mary Tinnin Mebane
      Birth: 1716, Pennsylvania, USA
      Death: Unknown

      Married Alexander Mebane in 1740 in Pennsylvania.

      NOTE: Burial location unknown. Some researchers claim burial was in Hawfields Presbyterian Cemetery, but Church records don't support that. The details are as follow:

      Camille Aydt's research includes talking to the current pastor of the church, who reported that there is no record of an interment for either Alexander Mebane Sr. or his son, Alexander Mebane Jr. at the current [Second] Hawfields Presbyterian Church Cemetery. This church was rebuilt in 1859 and the only records of burials started in the early 1800's. The pastor also had a listing of people they believe were buried in the old [First] Hawfields Cemetery from early church records and neither Alexander was listed. The original church was built in the mid 1750's and the old cemetery has only a handful of stones, none of which are legible today and the cemetery itself is in total disrepair. Camille was also able to contact the greenskeeper for the Hawfields Presbyterian Church Cemetery, who confirmed that Alexander Mebane Sr. is not buried there. He did, however, tell her that Alexander was listed on the first church's roll in a book "Church in the Old Fields" by Herbert Turner. This source states that Alexander Mebane Sr. was too old for service during the Revolutionary War, but he used his grist mills to supply food for the war and that he was also the Sheriff in 1753. It is possible that both Alexander Sr. (died 1792) and Alexander Jr. (died 1795) are buried in the old [First] Hawfields Cemetery, but it may not be possible today to prove or disprove this theory. Diane Gravlee, who took the overview photo of the cemetery as posted for the Hawfields Presbyterian Church Cemetery on Findagrave, reports that the tall monument in the photograph is for Stephen A. White, who died in 1908 and the plot surrounded by the curbing is for the White family. Some researchers appear to be claiming the tall monument as Alexander Mebane Sr.'s grave marker and this is not correct.
