Marker text: KINGSVILLE

Here, before the Revolution, stood King's Tavern. The British cavalryman, Tarleton, raiding, camped here in 1781. In the same year sick and wounded French soldiers were brought to this place from Yorktown; seventy of them are buried here. Nearby is the site of the Colonial Church of which Archibald McRoberts was minister.
