    "Vincent, the son of the immigrant, distinguished himself as an Indian fighter and as a Captain in the Revolutionary army, but his most distinguished feat was that of killing the Indian Benge who had terrorized and murdered settlers in Southwest Virginia.

    While attending court at Jonesville, Virginia Vincent Hobbs was informed that Benge was then making his thirteenth raid. Gathering several friends he left Jonesville immediately and soon took up the trail of the Indians. At Little Stone Gap near Norton, Virginia Vincent Hobbs killed Benge with an ounce ball bear rifle, thus ending for all time the Indian raids in Southwest Virginia. For this feat of bravery and in recognition of his splendid leadership the Virginia Legislature voted him a silver mounted rifle.

    Vincent Hobbs was never married, so he was free to travel. His love of adventure and hunting took him westward where in an encounter with the Indians in Tennessee he killed Buck Elk, an Indian Chief. From Tennessee he went to Missouri where he lived for a few years, but later came back to Tennessee where he died."


    In the meantime news of the disaster to the Livingstons swept across the frontiers. When it reached Lee Courthouse, court being in session, immediately adjourned. Lieutenant Vincent Hobbs called upon the bystanders for volunteers to make instant pursuit. Thirteen men responded. Do they find the trail and trust to the speed of their horses to overtake the marauders? Not Lieutenant Vincent Hobbs! He is a backwoodsman as well as a soldier. He knows every pass in the mountains. With the unerring judgment of a hunter he dashes forward to Stone's Gap, where the Indians will cross Cumberland Mountain. He reaches the Gap. The Indians have already passed. He takes the fresh trail, comes upon two hunters—the two sent out by The Bench on the 8th—and kills them. The main party has not yet passed. Back to the Gap. Fortunately they are in time. They secrete themselves in ambush, and wait.
    Calendar of Virginia State Papers, Vol. VII, pp. 111, 112; Summer's “Southwest Virginia,” pp. 441-443.
    The Bench broke camp on the morning of the 9th, crossed Powell's Mountain, and is at this very moment approaching Stone's Gap. He comes within the ambuscade. Bang**** Bang**** At the first fire The Bench and three of his warriors fall dead. Mrs. Elizabeth Livingston and her guard are some distance in the rear. He orders her to run, which she performs slowly. He attempts to kill her; she breaks the force of the blow with her arm, and, seeing her friends approaching, grapples him. He throws her back over a log, at the same time aiming a blow at her head, which renders her senseless; in which condition she lies for an hour, but finally recovers.25
    Lieut. Vincent Hobbs sent The Bench's scalp to the governor of Virginia, and the Legislature voted him a silver-mounted rifle for his gallantry.

    5. James Hobbs (son of Vincent Sr.) is believed to be one of the older children. Records of James Hobbs appear in the Augusta County court records in which he states that he enlisted in a company to go against the Indians and was on the frontier 21 years, lost from his family and considered dead. A record telling about his years on the frontier was found in Stanton, Va. by the writer several years ago.

    In a suit filed in 1805, Hobbs vs. Hobbs, Orator is James Hobbs. In 1773 orator made a settlement in Washington County, on North Fork of Holston...when he returned found that his father, Vincent Hobbs had sold to William Williams who sold ...Extract From Chalkley, Vol. II, Page 109.

    Eventually James Hobbs settled in Russell County and there are many references to him in the Court records, among others to his land holdings. On September 19, 1817 James Hobbs Sr. and his wife Rachel and Jacob Olinger and Hannah his wife made a conveyance of land to Jeremiah Muncy...(DBK 6-242) Later James Hobbs moved to Missouri.

    Notes:

    Ezekial Hobbs was a soldier in the Revolutionary and was pensioned for his service. On the 6th day of October 1834 when he made his application he stated he was 72 years of age, and that he was drafted in 1776 and was living on the North Fork of the Holston River in Washington County, where he had always lived. Most of his service was against the Indians on the frontier, but in 1780 he was drafted to march against the British and Tories in the Carolinas...he marched with the Regiment commanded by Col. William Campbell on the expedition to Kings Mountain but being taken sick was left and did not share in the "glory of the battle." Further, he was in that service only two weeks which was his last, and he was living on the North Fork of the Holston River when he was first called into service on the same farm where he now resides in the County of Washington, Virginia and where he has always resided.
