This inscription over the grave site of Agnes of Glasgow is in error regarding King Haigler. He was a chief of the Catawba Nation (from 1750 - 1763); however, Haigler was slain on August 30, 1763, by a raiding party of Shawnees as he journeyed from the Waxhaws Settlement on Cane Creek to a Catawba town on Twelve Mile Creek. Thus he died 17 years before Agnes ever arrived on American shores!
