1.  Grolier Online:  the American Presidency [link died].  Segment on Zachary Taylor.  Says Pres. Taylor was born "near Barboursville, VA."

2.  Descendants of Robert MONTAGUE by Donald L. Kitts.  Says Pres. Taylor was born in "Montebello, Orange Co., VA"

3.  Family Group Sheet of Pres. Zachary Taylor [link died] by John L. Rogers.  Says Pres. Taylor was born in "Montebello Estates, Hare Forest, Virginia."

4.  Encyclopedia Britannic CD-98.  Says Pres. Taylor was born in Montebello, VA.

5.  U.S. Geological Survey.  GNIS:  Geographic Names Information Service (online database).  Barboursville is in Orange Co., VA.  The only Montebello in VA in the database is in Nelson Co., which was never part of Orange Co. (or vice versa).  Montebello would appear to be the name of a plantation, not a town.
