    Son of John and Sarah but raised by Patience, his stepmother. James migrated south some 40 miles, after his fathers death, to the Harford area in north Maryland. He found his first wife Elizabeth Walker and second wife Mary Davis among the followers of the St. George Parish. After the birth of his fourth child, James and family moved to North Carolina near the modern town of Liberty.
    James became a very influential person in the area. He homesteaded some 600 acres of the Piedmont Grassland area for which he received title after the War of Revolution. In 1782 he sold the land and moved north some 20 miles near Greensboro, NC. where he purchased several smaller farms. He was one of the protesters (Regulator) against the tyrannical English taxation practices and a participant in the Battle of Alamance.
    James sold his last landholding in 1811 after which nothing is known. His age would have been over 90 at this time. The sale of the lands in 1810 and 1811 may have been done by James Jr. after the death of his father.
