Daniel and a friend followed the band and recaptured one of their prisoners,a well-known local leader of the Revolutionary, as well as capture the leader of the raiders, who was later executed by hanging because of his actions.

Daniel B. Cutbirth married Elizabeth Coleman before 1785, when his first son, Benjamin Cutbirth was born. He followed his parents, and the family of one of his mother's brothers to Maury Co. TN in about 1807, where his father and mother passed on, 1814-17 and 1818 respectively.
