Benjamin Cleveland was born in Virginia in 1738 and moved, in 1769, to Rowan County. He was a prominent figure in the early history of the area. However, it was as the leader of soldiers from Wilkes and Surry Counties at the Battle of Kings Mountain that he won lasting fame. After the war, he moved to South Carolina and became a county judge.
