Hello Jean Stinnett Thompson, My greatgrandfather was James Pleasant Stinnett. He supposedly came from Virginia and was living in Fayette County in 1850. Did not think his father was Francois, but not sure. Thought it may have been Richard. Fought in the 22nd Virginia Infantry. Raised a family in Fayette County, WV after the war. Have more information if you think he may be the James you're looking for.
