We have not been able to discern the death date or he or Dicey.I suspect they are in Pine Log Cemetery.That is where Sylvester and Joseph or buried.I have searched for anything to come up with a date, but he didn't have land here or anything.Apparently when his dad died there was a mess with the inheritance and he didn't want his children to go through that so he had given them what he had before he died.(story I heard anyway).
Here are my notes on James:

The researcher is:david adams,firstname.lastname@example.org...I don't know if that is still valid.He lives around Nashvilee TN.And is a descendant of James.
I thought I had James' military information but apparently it did not get put in my file.I'd have to go through my older messages and ferret it out.
If you cannot reach David Adams at the above address let me know and I'll see what I can find.
