  • Birth: ABT 1796
  • _SDATE: 1 JUL 1796 in Greenbrier County, Virginia
  • Note:

    James has many birthdates. His birth was aboutt 1795/1796 from Roberta McKenzie. Calculated from 3 notarized statements for Bounty Land Warrant 16 April 1851 states James McVey age 53 (abt 1797). From sworn statement for Declartion for Pension 1871 at Marion Co. Indiana age 75 (abt 1796). And if James and Jane were twins, Jane's age 82 on 1880 Buchanan Co. Iowa census calculates their birth to about 1798. It's possible that he lied about his birthdate and entered the war of 1812 at age 14 or 15, instead of 16. Thereafter all statements of his age in respect to the War of 1812 should have been 1 or 2 years more than he was in actuallity. But due to the leeway possible from census dates, Jane could have been born in between 1797 and 1799. That makes the most common birth date to both of them 1797.
