Death: Aug. 9, 1813

John Tipton was a captain in Lord Dunmore's war, but he more generally was known as Col. John Tipton, for among other things, his service as a militia colonel in what then was Washington Co., North Carolina (later Tennessee). As County Lieutenant he also was in charge of the Shenandoah Co., Virginia, militia during the Revolutionary War. Col John Tipton was born 15 Aug 1730, St. Paul's Parish, Balitmore, Co., Maryland, and died and was buried on Sinking Creek, Washington Co., Tennessee, in August 1813. He served in the legislatures of three states: the Virginia House of Delegates in 1776 and 1778-1781; North Carolina General Assembly as senator and representative, 1786-1787, and Tennessee State Senate 1796-1799, and was a key figure in the battle over the lost state of Franklin. His son John Tipton, Jr., was a militia colonel in Tennessee, and Speaker of the House of Representatives of Tennessee 1807-1809.
