Re: James Ezell moved from VA to SC in/around 1790
If this is the same James Ezeel that was later in Spartanburg County he is my ancestor through his son Ephraim. Most have Ephraims birthyear as 1792 but that is wrong he was born about 1770 in Virginia. I just recently found out the wife of James Ezell and everywhere I have looked said she is unknown.
Union County South Carolina James Ezell of Union District to Jonathan Springer 45 acres on branches of Browns Creek dated 21 September 1801 Rebecky Ezell wife of James relinquished dower 3 November 1801 and recorded 29 Deb 1804.
I think the Dorcas you mention is the daughter of William Ezell a cousin to James Ezell. JHames Ezell and his brother Timothy was in Wilkes County in 1787 taxlist but not sure when he came to South Carolina for sure.
