                    Revolutionary War vet buried at St. Peter’s

                    A SENSE OF PLACE — Oxford and Lafayette County may not have been settled until the 1830s, but a settler from an even earlier era lies in Oxford’s historic cemetery. Born in Virginia in 1759, Daniel Green McKie had reached age 77 — an achievement in itself in that time — when he arrived in Lafayette County with his family. He lived only three years more, and his unmarked grave was later given a headstone by the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. (March 19, 2010, Page 2B)
