About 1722-25, when Richard Turbeville and his family moved to North Carolina, they lived on the Occoneechee with other Chickasaw traders and next to Anderson, Pace, Mason, Gibson, Lang[Long?] and Thomas Whitmell.
This area of settlement was at a place then called Plumtree Island (?), on the banks of the Roanoke River S.E. of Weldon NC. Plumtree Island is between Northampton Co. NC and Halifax Co. NC today. Perhaps it was in Bertie Co, NC in those days ?
In 1761 Thomas Pace and Thomas Low were grantees in the will of a John Cotton.
