"By the spring of 1749, the Irish settlement consisted of at least fourteen families, including those of James Cathey, George Cathey, Jr., Richard Graham, John Brandon, Thomas Gillespie . . . With respect to the settlement process, few names carry greater significance than that of James Cathey. He and his son George were the leaders in th eorganization of what was probably the first English-speaking settlement to be established in North Carolina (or , indeed, in the entire South, exclusive of Virginia) so far from a navigable river. Moreover, it was on George Cathey's land that the settlers constructed the earliest known religious edifice west of the Yadkin - Thyatita Presbyterian Church." p. 37 Carolina Cradle
