I am trying to determine why so many people list the year of death for James Albritton (born 17 Sept 1705 in York Co VA, son of Thomas & Agnes Albritton) as 1770. From all the sources I have of him, James Albritton was alive on 4 March 1769 when he sold and bought land in Pitt Co NC, and dead by 25 May 1774, when his property was distributed among his sons as per his will.
Is there another source that proves James Albritton (Sr.) died in the year 1770, as one finds in so many different places online? If there is no other source, isn't the best we can say that he died between March 1769 and May 1774?
Also, does anyone have any hard evidence to prove that James had children by two wives, Elizabeth and Amy? I have seen conflicting statements in various places about which children went to which wives. Is there any firm proof one way or the other?
Finally, is there any proof of the maiden names of James Albritton, Sr.'s wives?
