"Battle of King's Mountain" by Lyman C. Draper, 1881 (Sacramento FHC)
            King's Mountain and Its Heroes, pg.437-441
      Early in 1781, when General Greene was manoeuvering on the upper border of North Carolina, Colonel Cleveland raised about a hundred riflemen, went to his assistance, serving awhile in the advance parties of light infantry, but returned home from their tour of duty a little before the conflict at Guilford.
      To Colonel Cleveland, ... In the southeastern portion of the present County of Ashe, was a well-known locality, mostly on the northern bank of the South Fork of New river, called "the Old Fields" ... These Old Fields belonged to Colonel Cleveland, and served, in peaceful times, as a grazing region for his stock.
      Having occasion to visit his New River plantation, Colonel Cleveland rode there ... arriving at Jesse Duncan's, his tenant, at the lower end of the Old Fields, on Saturday, the fourteenth of April, 1781. Unfortunately for the Colonel, Captain William Riddle, a noted Tory leader, ... was approaching from the Virginia border ... and now en route for Ninety Six, ... reaching Benjamin Cutbirth's, some four miles above the Old Fields .... Descending the river to the upper end of the Old Fields, where Joseph and Timothy Perkins resided - about a mile above Duncan's - both of whom were absent in Tory service, Riddle learned from their women, that Cleveland was but a short distance away, at Duncan's, with only his servant, Duncan, and one or two of the Callaway family there. ....

He also aided in the organization of three Associations, viz: New River, Ashe and Alleghany, and Alleghany and Grayson. Organized or assisted in the organization of ten churches and forty Sunday schools. He was a faithful, consistent member of a Missionary Baptist church for forty-seven years; a Sunday School Superintendent; deacon, exhorter, and always faithful and earnest in his efforts for the salvation of souls. He was never physically strong and for the last three years of his life he was a constant sufferer, but withal cheerful. His faith in God never faltered. The influence of his life and work in Ashe county will last forever. He leaves a widow and five children and a host of friends to mourn his loss. May the great head of the church comfort them in this sore bereavement.
