Hello I'm looking for information on a James and Martha Ledbetter. I'm thinking they moved from Swain County, NC sometime prior to 1850 to the Cades Cove area. He is my 5X GG and I dont know anything before him.
I know one of his children was Daniel (1825-1902). He assisted construction of the Cable Mill in Cades Cove. He returned to NC and is buried near Bryson City.
I also believe James and Martha had another son named Mathew. His wife was Rachel.
