Don't know if this helps, but the Giles County History book published in 1982 lists this:

Revolutionary War Period
Fort Branch is mention in Middle New River Settlements as the place where Matthew French took his family for safety in May 1778. Indians had massacred members of the Moredock McKinnsey family near the Stockpens in Narrows that day. Matthew, living up Wolf Creek, had learned of Iandians in the area and was able to escape to the fort. John McComas and Thomas H. Napier had come with their family from Md. in 1776 to ultimately settle in the area of Pearisburg on land later owned by Charles French.
