Very simple. All of Gilbert's descendents are born in KY. All of James's descendents are from VA or Hawkins Co., TN. James with sons Stephen (my ancestor) and John (who married Phoebe Runnels and raised a family in Carter Co., KY) are on the same page in 1830 Hawkins Co. In the household of James are Solomon and Daniel. In the early 1830's, James and his descendentsa moved to E. KY (Greenup, Morgan) which later became Carter and Elliott. I believe whole heartly that Gilbert and James are brothers and at the very outside, 1st cousins.
