J.V. Thompson Journal vol 3. p. 21-22: "Mrs Barnes tells m e the following family history or lore which was given to h er by her father John Jack & her older brother Johnston Jac k.She said they told her that her great grandfather Jame s Jack was Captain of the Militia in North of Ireland in Co unty Down at time of the persecution of the Protestants & t he Catholics were very bitter against him by reason of hi s marshalling the militia against themAfter the wars ha d quieted down, he went back to his old home in Scotlan d & later returned to Ireland.He had raised a Catholic bo y who had acquired land near or adjoining him & it is not c lear where this land was in Ireland or Scotland (in fact , I think, it relates to earlier members of the family in F rance) & when he returned from the wars, supposing his land s would have been confiscated & taken, he found this youn g man whom he had taken in & befriended, after he had faile d to get any recognition from his Catholic friends (& relat ives?) had taken charge of his lands as if they were his ow n & when Capt James Jack wanted to recompense him, but he w ould take nothing but asked him that if he had any more chi ldren born in America to which he was fleeing, he would cal l the first son Patrick & use his influence to have it cont inued in future generations.This Catholic's name was Patr ick Mrs Barnes s'd & he wanted a name sake, but she does no t know what his last name was.Mrs Barnes said her fathe r had always told her that his grandfather James Jack ha d a large family children, but he could not name them all. " JVT vol. 3, p. 32-33:"I recall that Mrs Barnes this after noon in speaking of her great grandfather James Jack, who w as Captain of the Militia with the Protestants in Ireland s aid he was so hunted by the Catholics that he had to be smu ggled on board ship encased in a whiskey cask or in a stor e box & that he had one child which had to be left behind f or fear of its crying & revealing his hiding.She though t this child was brought over afterward which too is eviden ce of his having married in Ireland.Some of his brother s came over at the same time.
