I have a James W Scaggs born about 1827 in MO who lived in AR in the 1860 census Boone co, AR. Married Jane ?? born abt 1827 also. their children were John H born about 1848, Tabitha A born about 1854, Mastin M (my gggrandfather) born 11-8-1857, Rachel born about 1860 (also maybe Brittain??). I am having trouble going back any further. The age would be right for the James you aren't sure how is related to your James maybe??
