Marilyn, I do not have much on James jr. but here are some thoughts: He most likely lived in Augusta Co. Va. which later became Highland Co. Va. with his parents James sr.(s/o Richard and Elizabeth who came from Sally Sands or Connemara, Ireland in 1743 and purchased 339 acres around Clover Creek, and Bullpasture River which is 4 miles south of Mcdowell, Va. [formerly: Mcdowelltown]) and Delilah Hicklin (d/o Thomas Hicklin b.1689 in Pennsylvania, d. Jan 31, 1772 Augusta Co. Va). James jr.'s Father's will is on file in Clark Co. Ky and copies are available for $8.00. I do not know where James jr. lived or died but there are Bodkin names on the following Ky census data Harrison Co 1810 and 1830, Bath Co 1820, Whitley Co 1850. Mark Allen says they ended up in Ohio. I have not researched Ohio at this time. I am the gggrandson of Beniah Botkin of Coopers Creek WV and I am looking for information on his parents John Botkin and his wife Jane E. (no last name yet) who show up in the Kanawha Co census in 1820 if you have any info on them I would be greatly interested. Good luck in your search.
