Tony, The James and family you referred to moved to Georgia the same time as William and his family who was the child of John James also had a child by the name of John. I think there is as much prove that he was the son of John. I would like to believe that the naming pattern always happen but it didn't. I believe John's oldest son was William, no other William I know of;and William's oldest son was Thomas. So we really can't say the pattern was always followed.
