John Withrow was the child of Robert & Janet WITHROW, emmigrants of Ulster, Ireland. I will mainly focus this page on John's descendants as this is my Family line.
The following was taken from "The Heritage of Rutherford County, North Carolina, Volume I, 1984"

James Withrow was born in Virginia in 1746 and arrived in Rowan County, N.C. about 10 miles west of present Salisbury by 1749 with his father, John Withrow.

John Withrow moved to Rutherford and settled on Cane Creek about 1772. James & his wife, Sydney (BRANDON) apparently did not arrive in Rutherford until five or more years later & after the birth of their three children.

Their children were named Mary (apparently for her grandmother WITHROW), Mary Ann, (apparrently for her grandmother BRANDON) & John.

James & these children lived on Cane Creek along with the families of his brothers & sisters, until James purchased land on Hinton Creek at present day Hollis in 1794. Some of his descendants live on Hinton Creek today.

John Withrow, born about 1777, married Mary ETHERINGTON 22 Jan. 1798. John secured most of the property of his grandfather, John WITHROW, who died 1795 on Cane Creek. John & Mary were the parents of 9 children:
