XI.JAMES MAXWELL b.abt. 1790 Virginia
James Great White Cheif Maxwell served in the Rev. War as did his brother Thomas he fought in several Indian skirmishes as well as at the Battle of Kings Mountain. He was a large man weighing 225 lbs. Broad shouldered, well built, , had a powerful voice straight coarse black hair and was fair completed with blue eyes. He was considered a very powerful man.
In 1772 James went from Brotecourt to Tazewell Va. with a friend Samuel Walker. That night they fell in with a hunting party among them Uriah Stone who claimed to have made the improvements on the land they were camping on namely the foundation of a cabin some felled and deadened trees and some split rails. James purchased it from him and that same year moved his family there. He reared his family there during the hostilities with the Indians. His wife and younger children lived in the fort for protection while he and his sons built their farm.
They worked hard clearing timber from the land . They built a large crude log cabin and out houses, planted a garden and orchard . He raised Hogs, Horses, cattle and sheep and kept four Da, ne dogs. and was well to do for the times. After awhile he brought his wife and children to the farm which was built on an old Indian burial ground. James felt relatively safe as the Indians never molested him, they called him the Great white Chief.
When he went in search of his stock he carried his rifle over his shoulder, his knife in his hand had one dog in front, one in back and one on either side. He never looked to the right or left. But straight forward.
When autumn rolled around James took his sons and went to the Kings Salt Works to get salt for his stock and to preserve his meat.. While gone some stray Indians passed through and came to the house in the forest where they found in the Orchard James's two small daughters Jenny and Mattie who had gone there to feed their pet lambs. They were tomahawked .The Indians then took two sons of a neighbor Samuel Moffit as captive's and went to the farm of Thomas Ingles where they took the family and performed depredations on them. James removed his family from the farm.
His daughter Elizabeth married Henry "Big Creek" Marrs whose mother had been killed by the Indians in Thompson Valley Va. In 1775. He also was a fierce Indian fighter.
JOHN JR.2 MAXWELL (JOHN1) was born Bef. 1740 in IRELAND, and died July 02, 1819 in LEXZINGTON, KENTUCKY. He married MARY MAXWELL April 12, 1804 in WASHINGTON CO, KENTUCKY.

THOMAS CAPT.2 MAXWELL (JOHN1) was born February 28, 1747/48 in OLD CRAIG PARISH, AUGUSTA CO, VIRGINIA, and died 1787 in TAZEWELL CO, VIRGINIA. HE MARRIED REBECCA WHO LATER MARRIED JOHN HAYS.
Thomas was christened 28 Feb. 1748 at Old Craig parish, Augusta County Va. And he died in the spring of 1787 when a small band of Shawnee Indians entered Burkes Garden . Thomas was killed while trailing them near Tug River at Maxwell's Gap. Taken from page 277 of The History of Tazewell County Va.
"Thomas was no "timorous " man He dressed often in hunting shirt with his tomahawk and scalping knife in a belt and with his trusty mountain rifle on his shoulder, he marched to and fought at Kings Mountain. After the battle at that place, which was fought on the 7th of October 1780 he settled on the North Fork of the Holston River, near Broad Ford, in the present Smyth County. "
