Per THE HERITAGE OF RUSSELL CO., VA VOL 1, (from pg 37)
published by Russell Co.

Stephen and Rebecca came to TN about 1808 and settled near Pikeville,
Victoria, Marion County, TN.

Steven Kilgore was born in Orange County, North Carolina between 1766-68
to Robert Kilgore and Winnie Clayton Kilgore of western North Carolina.
Steven Kilgore's name appears on the Russell County, Virginia tax roll
in 1788 indicating that he probably had accompanied the Salyer brothers
to the Copper Creek area in Russell County. Steven Kilgore married
Rebecca Salyer around 1788, probably in Russell County. Steven Kilgore
appears to have resettled in Marion County, Tennessee in 1808. He came
down through Bledsoe County where he stopped for awhile with a Joe
Kilgore. (Joe Kilgore has not been identified as to his relationship to
Steven Kilgore.) He then continued down Sequatchie Valley to what is now
Victoria in Marion county. (Not a county until 1817.) At that time the
territory was Cherokee Indian land and the white people who came in were
considered intruders.

Steven and Rebecca Kilgore had three sons when they came to Tennessee.
Charles born in 1790, William and Joseph born between 1800 and 1810.
When Steven came to Victoria he settled on the Cowan farm and adjacent
property. Besides being a farmer he also practiced his profession as a
preacher. Steven and Rebecca had eight children of which many
descendants still live throughout Sequatchie Valley and surrounding
counties. Steven died between 1844-45 in Marion County and was buried in
the family plot in Kilgore Cemetery on the foothills of ( page 81 )
Walden's Ridge in the Valley. Rebecca was still living at the age of
ninety according to the 1860 census. She was living with her daughter,
Rebecca Layne. The exact time of her death is not known, but she was
buried beside her husband.

Authors Note: Rebecca Salyer Kilgore is believed to have been a mixed-blood
Cherokee of the AniTsiskwaClan. See Chikamaka Cherokee Roll : Chikamaka™
