John McCulloch - Eastern TN 1793
Posted by: linda (ID *****0571) Date: August 31, 2007 at 15:21:39
  of 1257

From the Knoxville Gazette of April 20, 1793:
"On Monday the 8th instant, a party of Creek Indians, headed by young Lasley, the person who has of late committed so many depredations on the frontier inhabitants of this district, burnt a house belonging to James Gallagher, on the south side of Holston, 20 miles from this place. Returning from the frontiers, they called on the Hanging Maw [Cherokee chief] and asked for provisions, which he refused them; upon which they shot his dog, and went off. A detachment of mounted infantry followed them across the Tennessee, without being able to overake them, though encouraged to pursue still further by Hanging Maw. The waters having risen suddenly, the company were obliged to swim their horses in recrossing the Tennessee, in attempting which, Mr. John McCulloch, a very worthy young man, was drowned."

This is not my family, I am providing this information for researchers.
