... Based on the previous travelers' accounts further research showed that THOMAS OGLE had on several occasions failed to uphold the regulations involving tavern keeping (Appendix II ) - In1761, Thomas Ogle appeared before the August term Court of General Sessions, having been indicted for running a tipling house. In conjunction with a plea of not guilty, a bond of £50 was posted by Ogle and of £20 each by Ogle's accusers, Thomas WILSON and WILLIAM WHITEHEAD. By the August Term of 1762, Ogle had retracted his not guilty plea and pleaded guilty -- He was fined £5 and ordered to stand committed until the fine was paid. Based on the Laws of the State of Delaware (Appendix II), SO this was the result of a violation of Section 5, the operation of a public house without a license. In such instances, the public house was referred to as a "tippling —house" . While in Delaware such terminology implied an illegal operation, in other states small urban taverns were also called grog shops, slop shops, and tippling houses (Rice 1983)...

13. WILLIAM WHITTED HOUSE - NE corner CHURTON and E. Queen Sts. Lot originally purchased by William Whitted, 1780. The portion fronting E. Queen St. is very old; the central hall and southeast parlor retain their deeply beveled paneling and six-paneled doors. The Churton St. side has by contrast a Victorian facade, which once featured a massive portico. The well-house with its cone-shaped roof and finial and the cook-house, joined by the breezeway to the main house, were added after 1900.
261 WHITTED, WILLIAM, SR. FAMILY CEMETERY (BEF. 1816)
There are no burials listed for this cemetery. The folder did contain information on the William Whitted family. This would be the cemetery of the William Whitted who died in 1816. [See cemetery #214 for his son William Whitted, Jr and family]. It is not clear that the cemetery still existed or was surveyed. [1996 comment]
Location - Shown in a 1970s diagram to be east off Hwy 86 North, about 3 miles north of the Hwy 86-Bypass 70 intersection in northern Hillsborough [in 1996]. Go up a hill on Hwy 86, past a concrete block store on the right [in 1996 enlarged by a wooden structure but apparently abandoned, with a one-story apartment building off to the rear], and with Jones Grove Baptist Church sitting back off to the left of the highway. 'Charlie Torain's' house [in the 1970s] stood on the right, [whether or not you go as far as Coleman Loop Road (SR #1334) was not shown]; you were to turn right just past his house on an old road and drive east for some undetermined distance. The cemetery was not shown on the chart [which suggests a survey was never made].
In 1786, merchant WILLIAM WHITTED, an Anderson-relative, built a home in Hillsborough, North Carolina, at
the northeast corner of Queen Street and Churton Street. It is still in use. (Dula 1979, 72–73).
