  • Notes 
    • This person's ancestry is unknown, but time and place suggest that Martin and Sarah could have been his parents. If you have more information, I would be excited to hear from you!

      Note that James is possibly in the household of Martin Rich in Emanuel County in the 1820 census. That same year, he is listed in neighboring Burke County with winnings from the land lottery. Is this the same person that moved down to Decatur County?
