    Robertson, John
    ROBERTSON, James, pioneer, was born in Brunswick county, Va.,
    June 28, 1742; of Scotch-Irish descent. In 1750 his parents removed to
    Wake county, N.C., where he worked on his father's farm,and was married
    in 1767 to Charlotte Reeves (17511843) of Virginia. Having joined Daniel
    Boone's third expedition across the Alleghany mountains in 1769, he came
    upon a valley in the present Watauga county, N.C., which he conjectured
    was a part of Virginia, and which seemed to him a feasible location for a
    settlement. Accordingly he planted corn; returned home, and in the spring
    of 1770 conducted sixteen families to the valley, where they continued to
    prosper, although, as it subsequently appeared, they had taken
    possession of land belonging to the Cherokees, form whom they were
    obliged to obtain
    a lease. In 1772 Capt. John Sevier (q.v.) of Virginia joined the
    settlement, and in 1776 the fort which he had built was attacked by the
    Indians under their chief, Oconostota, aided by the British. During the
    siege of twenty days that followed Robertson served as lieutenant under
    Sevier, and with a force of forty men they succeeded in driving off the
    assailants. For his conduct in this affair Lieutenant Robertson was
    appointed by the governor of North Carolina to defend Watauga county
    against further assaults from Oconostota. On Dec. 25, 1779, he made a
    second settlement on the present site of Nashville, Tenn., which was soon
    augmented by the Watauga settlers under Sevier, Robertson acting as civil
    and military bead of the combined forces, 256 in number. These, however,
    were soon greatly reduced by the attacks of the Indians, desertion and
    starvations, and the 134 remaining threatened to abandon the settlement.
    Robertson sought out Daniel Boone in Kentucky, from whom he obtained
    ammunition. On April 2, 1781, he defended the fort of Nashville against
    1,000 Indians, in which attack he would have been killed save for the
    heroic intervention of his wife. He subsequently succeeded in thwarting
    the British control of the Choctaws and Chickasaws, and effected terms of
    peace with the Cherokees. From 1784 until 1796 he was compelled to
    defend his settlement against ALEXANDER McGILL
