The information below states that James' daughter's names were unknown.Does anyone else have a connection to this James? Thanks!Debbie
"James EZELL is not listed in the 1790 census of South Carolina. But, in Deed Bk C, p 351, Union Court House, Union, South Carolina, there is recorded a deed, dated 1791, wherein James EZELL sold a tract of land on Fair Forest, Buffalo Creek....... This indicates he had bought the land either earlier in that year or soon after the 1790 census of South Carolina was taken. The oldest records of deeds in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, records a deed, dated in 1808, in which James EZELL sold 100 acres of land on Pacolet River to James SCOTT. Dr. Humphrey K. EZKLL of Woodruff, South Carolina, descended from James EZELL, Sr., states that "James had 12 children, three sons and nine daughters."
