Notes for JOHN STUART, CAP: Old Frontiers, by John P Brown, 1938, Southern Publishers, Kingsport, TN; A young Scot nobleman with the British army, came to the Colonies as an Indian Agent.

According to Indian custom of giving names based on physical characteristics, the young officer was called "Bushyhead" in recognition of his very large crop of curly red hair.

John was stationed at Ft Loudon as the Captain of a British company in 1757. The fort was besieged and captured by the war chief O-go-no-sto-ta on August 7, 1760. Nearly all the garrison was killed, but Captain Stuart was rescued and taken to Virginia by the civil chief, Atacullaculla. Stuart was later appointed Superintendent of Indian Affairs, South of the Ohio River and married Susannah Emory.
