Affidavits of James Donalson, and Rev. John Strong.

From the "Gate City Herald" undated and no authors name:

Cox is the man who stood guard at Ransome Mills during the terrible winter of 1779---known to this day as the coldest and rainiest winter in the annals of this territory. While here many of his comrades deserted, others died and at one time he was left almost alone. The legendary story goes that many men in full vigor one morning would be dead by the next, such was the smallpox ravage which extended from the Mason Dixon Line to Charleston. He lived in spite of the treachery of the Tories and Indians, the poor clothing of the Continentals, and the great smallpox epidemic which almost completely depleted the Continental Army in the south.

John Cox did possibly as valiant a service for Scott County in the Revolutionary Days as any man in the whole Southwest. John seemed to have somewhat distinguished himself in his unerring method of bumping off Indians and getting rid of redcoats. In his Revolutionary record at Washington it is stated that on the Guyandott River he saved his Captain's life and in the hand to hand encounter with the big Indian chief, who killed Major Moore, which lasted for some time---sometimes the Indian had the best of it and then sometimes John was winning until finally John gave the Indian the death blow with his hunting knife. Here, he states he killed three other Indians outright and recaptured a white prisoner.

The following is extracted from a story in the "Gate City Herald," dated 23 September 1937 and written by C.V. Compton:

No man in the whole region of the Clinch had wider range of knowledge than John Cox as to the intent of the Tories and Indians. He had volunteered long before the Revolutionary War to fight against the Shawnees in Northwest Virginia and then he saw service at the Battle of Point Pleasant under Captain Lewis. His father had a large family and was drafted to do military duty against the Indians but his stalwart son John dutifully took his father's place and became an outstanding Indian fighter. John Cox, though a taciturn man made strong friendships and maintained the warmest affection for men with whom he associated. He was a typical frontiersman of the highest order. The perils of Indian wars were exactly suited to his ….tal and imperturbable nature. Cox enlisted and served his enlistments out more often than any other man in the whole Clinch region. If the records are to be relied upon, he enlisted five times and each time received an honorable discharge during these Revolutionary Days. He was the man who volunteered to relieve Samuel Stallard of Revolutionary duties when he became ill on the march to Ransome Mills at Point Saplings (Bristol). ……………. that he took Raliegh Stallard's place but due to the statement being made in 1832, it is the writer's opinion that Samuel Stallard's name should have been given instead of Raliegh Stallard. The only Raliegh we have been able to find any record of was only seven years of age at this time and the son of Samuel. This John Cox saw service at Ransome Mills, guarding this port of entry to the Lead Mines from the Tories and the Cherokees of East Tennessee and North Carolina. Later he chased the Redcoats down thru the Carolinas even to the swamps of the Charleston region and in turn he was chased by them. He never overlooked an opportunity to demonstrate his unerring ability wherever and whenever an Indian or a Tory appeared.

This man Cox claimed the hills of Scott County as his homeland. He died in Scott County and left many descendants, who still live in that region.5 He married Rebecca Dunn on Jul 28, 1780 at Tinker Creek / Glade Creek / Great Lick, Botetourt, Virginia, US, Surety William Cox. (See Kegley's Virginia Frontier by Fredrick Bittle Kegley 1938 p 539.)1,6,7,8,9,2 The first record of land owned by Francis STURGILL is a grant for 500 acres on New River, dated 1797. From 1782 through 1789, he paid taxes on 100 acres in Montgomery Co., Va., but no deed for that land has been located. His grant of 500 acres was made on two Treasury Warrents, which were given for military service, but such warrents were negotiable and could be bought and sold on the open market. Francis sold this land to John Cox in 1802 for $1,000, a very large sum for that time, when land still sold for a few cents per acre, which indicates that this was a well developed farm in 1802.5 John Cox died in 1840 at Virginia, US.1,4 He died in 1851 at Alleghany, Virginia, US.2
