JOHN MARTIN CABLE
(Pringle Hill)

  On this land once known as Elk
Pasture the first white children of the
Allegheny Wilderness were born to
John Martin Cable, frontiersman and
part time Dunkard preacher, who came
from Bedford in 1782.
  His homestead was occupied in 1795
by George & Philip Pringle who had
married Cable's daughters Mary &
Catherine, and for whom this locality
is named.
  Both couples are buried in this
pioneer cemetery.
