I am searching for my James family. My gggrandfather was Thomas James. He was born in Ms. in 1801. His oldest brother's name was John James. Looked up Jahn James in 1800 census. There was one John James in Mississippi in 1800 on page 117. Does anyone have the 1800 census to look this up for me.

A shot in the dark again. My grgrandfather was Monroe R. James, listed as age 9 in 1860 census of Holmes Co., Miss., along with a brother Andrew age 11 and a little girl I assume was their sister Elizabeth, 3. There were 3 little Brown kids also in the household; the only adult listed was a B. A. James, female, 36. This was in Lexington, Holmes Co., Miss. Do you have any idea who these people were or who the father(s) were or anything? Susie J. James

Sorry I don't. My James moved to TN before 1814 then by 1820 they were in IL. By 1870 they were in Arkansas

the Tennessee mention is interesting in that in the 1880 census Andrew James, the elder brother of my paternal great-grandfather Monroe R. James (who died prior to 1880 census, in 1879 by reckoning) says his father was born in Tennessee. Andrew was 11 in 1860 census reporting in Lexington, Miss., in Holmes County. SJ

Also Hetty's daughter Mrs. Sarah Julia James McIntire with husband Andrew McIntire from Kenansville, N.C. Son Joshua James, Jr., removed to Natchez, Miss., and wed a wealthy North Carolina widow, Mrs. Johnson, who owned "Ion" Plantation, Tensus Parish, La. Two of their four sons in Louisiana Confederate cavalry service. I believe Josh' Jr. is buried New Orleans. The last brother, John Sage James, editor and publisher of the Wilmington Star, remained in Wilmington. I decend LtCol Robert Wm. James second wife's son, Biloxi harbormaster, Capt. Harry Copp James, my great grandfather. James Miller, Dutchman's Creek Buff, Southport N.C.
