He was born circa 1705 in Wales. He migrated to Pennsylvania, then down to North Carolina. He died in 1768 in Rowan County, North Carolina. He was married to Mary Whitty, who was either born in Wales or Virginia. I can't find the parents of James. Supposedly they are Asa and Achea, but I can't find any documentation supporting that. And I can't find the parents of Mary Whitty. Any information will be appreciated. Thank you.
