Death: Jan. 31, 1828

Tennessee, USA

Dr. Grubb was the oldest son of the prominent Pennsylvania ironmaster and Patriot, Peter Grubb, Jr. The following is from David Grubb's "The Grubb Family of Grubb's Landing, Delaware":

"Alan Burd Grubb was a doctor in Tennessee who was the surgeon for Colonel Morgan's Cherokee regiment from October 7, 1813 to April 11, 1814. He was at the critical Battle of Horseshoe Bend during the War of 1812.

"When he came of age, Burd decided not to enter the iron business and in 1798 sold his share of the family firm to his younger brother for $29,266 to be paid over time. In 1800, he moved to Tennessee where he ultimately established his medical practice in Calhoun, McMinn County.

"About 1805 he married Nonnie Rodgers, the part Cherokee daughter of the notorious John Hellfire Rogers and Elizabeth Emory. Nonnie was a young widow who had three children with Alan. In 1817, he applied for a 640-acre tract of land claiming Indian status by marriage. This became known as the Alan Grubb reservation."
