Surname James in Oldenburg

Classification: Query
Surnames: James, Osburn/Osborn
I am looking for any info on a George James who immigrated to North Carolina, USA in the later 1700s. He is 1st found in the 1790 USA census. He probably came from Grossherzogtum, Oldenburg, Germany area. Other families from that area maybe Burger, Oltman, Yeager and Featherkile. George James may have come to the USA via England. He married Elizabeth Osburn (probably English) 1800 in North Carolina.
Alternate spellings could be Jameson, Jamison, Jamieson, Iames, Jaymes.
George James moved to KY and then northwest IL. He died in 1840. He was probably born sometime between 1760 and 1775.
