    Our first record of Robert is in 1775. He purchased 160 acres on Killian Creek in Tryon County, NC on 7 Oct 1775 from William King. (recorded in Tryon Co Deeds p. 252-253) He then sold this land on 11 Jan 1785 (then in Lincoln Co) to John Boggs (recorded in Lincoln Co Deeds p. 787) [Note: Tryon County was formed from Mecklenburg County in 1768 and existed until 1779. In 1779 Lincoln County was formed from Tryon County.] In 1788 Robert purchased land from Robert and Margaret McKessick. (recorded in Lincoln Co Conveyances, Book 3, p. 429)

    Although the records list Robert Knox as serving in the militia at the Battle of Kings Mountain, he stated himself in his 1832 pension application that he was not at the battle. "I was in the service in the army that marched against Ferguson and the Tories, to Kings Mountain, under Colonels Graham and Johns(t)on, this time I cannot recollect but know I was not in the battle at Kings Mountain, having been sent by Colonel Johnson upon some business. I recollect joining the army commanded by General Green, near Camden, and having being (been) placed out as sentinel the first night." Robert Knox was granted a Revolutionary War Pension in 1833 at age 90 shortly before his death.

    His Will was written March 13, 1830, and proved in court in 1833 at the Lincoln Co., NC courthouse. (Will Book 1 p.288) Estate to be divided amongst his wife Mary and seven of his children. Daughter Jane Knox Latta received Five Dollars, but did not share in the division of the estate. Son Robert and Daughter Agnes were not mentioned in the will; it is presumed they had predeceased their father. Son William and Robert E. Bell were Executors of the estate.

    I descend from Robert's son James and can document most of James' descendents to the present day. Many of his descendents remained in Mecklenburg, Iredell and Lincoln Counties NC but some of them migrated to Tennessee and Arkansas.
