      George Gillespie: The wealthiest man in the county that year was Robertís neighbor, George Gillespie; his net taxable worth was calculated at £11,016! After Robert Campbellís death circa 1797, his 400 acre tract, including a mill, was sold to Gillespie by Robertís heirs (see Table 7 below). The location of Gillespieís land is well known, hence we can use this fact to approximate the location of Robert Campbellís property. George Gillespie was an early settler, having arrived in 1772, who purchased land from Jacob Brown (who had acquired it from the Cherokees!) near the mouth of Big Limestone Creek about three miles from its junction with the Nolichucky River. Today this site is very near the boundary line between modern-day Greene and Washington Counties, Tennessee.
