An article from the "Mountain Herald" about the installation of a monument at the grave of James Robertson, who was killed by the Indians in 1784, near the present town of Arthur, Tennessee. The dedication involved the Daniel Boone Post No. 125, of the American Legion, of [Harrogate, Tennessee]. Captain W. I. Jones, Commander of the Legion Post, presented the monument to Lincoln Memorial University for preservation and "to the public for appreciation." Judge J. H. S. Morrison spoke on the history of the fearless pioneer James Robertson: according to "historical data" Robertson lived in an old block house on Indian Creek near Gibson Station. He was originally from the Wautaga Settlement and "of the same Robertson family as was the historic James Robertson who settled in the locality of Nashville."
