      Lot 22, where the Gattis house now stands, is diagonally across W. King Street from the Colonial Inn. There appears to be no trace of General Benton's grave behind the present house. General Samuel Benton was born in Oxford, N. C., the son of Samuel Benton and his second wife, Frances Kimbrough of Edgecombe county. He was general of the 6th brigade serving under General Moore. (See G. W. Bruce's letter in Hillsboro Recorder, June 30, 1875).
