The Man Who Shot Col. Ferguson at King's Mountain

Youngs in Lee Co History by James Talmadge Young page 647 there is an article on "The earliest record which we have goes back to Israel Young ---He raised a large family but we only have a record of two. One ws David Young and the other was Robert Young. They were both in the battle of Kings Mountain during the Revolutionary War, when Col Ferguson the British commander, was killed.

The colonel commanding the American troops to shoot Ferguson, this man failed when his gun jammed and he then commanded Robert Young to shoot him. Robert, replied, " I will try what "sweet lips"will do meaning his flintlock gun. He fired and killed him. (Summers History of Southwest Va. gives this.)

Robert Young is accepted by the DAR as the man who shot Col. Ferguson at King's Mountain. Yes, there is controversy among historians, saying many shot him, but the DAR accepts that it was Robert who was the first who shot and brought him down off his horse. He caught one foot in a stirrup and the horse kept going around and around in a big circle, dragging Col Ferguson's body. The others fired as the horse dragged him.

Robert Young was with another soldier in the battle whose gun had jammed and he said to Robert... "There's Ferguson. Shoot him!"  Robert drew a bead on Ferguson and said..."I'll see what Sweet Lips can do."  He called his rifle Sweet Lips, which was the same thing he called his wife.

There is a DAR plaque on this Robert Young's cabin which still stands on the grounds of the Veteran's Administration in Kingsport, TN. A very nice book was written on this Robert's family by Fred and Dessie Simmons called Robert Young Sr., Patriot and Pioneer.

First Shot Fired

Subject: no mistake-just tidbit of info...

I am a decendent of Phillip Greever (on your "Kings Mtn"roster site).
I believe that,according to the book "The History of Tazewell County" ,there is supposed to be an affidivate indicating Phillip Greever fired the first shot and gave help to a wounded british solder after the battle- The soldier said it was the first shot of the battle that got him.
      I have not confirmed this (other than reading the book) and it certainly is not very news worthy- just one of those "tidbits" of information that makes History interesting! Please let me know if you have any other info on this....
                                                   With much appreciation for your site...

And all correspondence from vistors to this website who have sent documentation of their ancestor's participation in the Battle of  King's Mountain. Thank you!

I have not used  a book by Bobby G. Moss called King's Mountain, The Patriots at, pub. 1990 and available from Southern Historical Press.  I hear it is a very good source.   You should be able to buy a copy from Kings Mt. Park.
    This book on the American Revolution in South Carolina contains a complete
roster in alphabetical order of each man who served in the Battle of King's
Mountain together with a short bibliography of each man.  This work is based on:
1) those who put in their application for a federal pension and stated they were
in the battle (or an application put forward by their wife, children),
2) those who filed for state pensions or pay and listed the battle in their service
3) applications of others who applied for a state or federal pension,
4) those who Draper accepted as participants and included in his definite study
of the battle,
5) those who appeared as participants in Heitman's list of Continental officers, and
6) those who appeared on the existing muster rolls, attested to by the signature of an office.
