  • Notes 
    • James' wife was called Sally. One reference calls her Rebecca.

      He is listed on the personal property tax lists as under 21 in Apr 1787 and over 21 in Apr 1788, so he must have been born between Apr 1766 and Apr 1767.

      James bought 86 acres in Campbell County, Virginia from Josiah Crews on 6 Oct 1796 for 66 pounds 13 shillings (Deed book 4 page 49). James and Sarah sold this land to David Tolbet in 1814 (Deed book 10 page 293).

      Dates of the children's birth come from 1810 census of Campbell County with the assumption that children not in 1810 census were born between 1810 and 1820. There may have been a son between Martha and Nancy who died before 1840.
