I think my James Madison may be your Benjamin, and I am of the decendants of the first wife: Elizabeth Cathcart.It is my understanding that James was born in GA and shortly after his marriage to his first wife-he was involved in a skirmish...I'm told he ended up sliting the old boy's throat and fled to North Carolina and set up a new life there.I'm thinking "Benjamin" would be his alias.Here's what I have on my line.Please compare it with your records and tell me what you think.
