Notes for Ebenezer Killough

Date of his birth is not known but he is also listed in his father's will as being a son under the age of ten. Served in the Revolutionary War from Camden District, So. Car. He was taken prisoner by the British at Savannah and confined eight months
and five days. In 1778, 1779, and 1783, he asked for land in Washington Co., Ga., as his bounty for his military service. By 1778, he was living in Georgia. He farmed at Rockfish Landing on the Oconee River in Wilkes County and died a bachelor there
about 1784. His brother John was living in Becklenburg Co., No. Car., and went to Georgia to be an administrator of the estate. Because of what he saw there, he and his brother Allen decided to move to Alabama. Soon many of the No. Carolina
Killoughs followed, living in the east central part of the state from 1790 to 1805. That year most of the Killoughs left for Tennessee.
