I am trying to prove that James Buchanan Gragg is James Burton Gragg's father. Both lived in North Carolina. No wills or land deeds have been found. I hit a brick wall.

Hi Jamy and welcome to G2G!

This James Burton Gragg?  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Gragg-1116

Please always include a profile link with your questions.  There's a box for it on the question form.

1850 Census for Burton Gragg, Caldwell County, North Carolina.  James Gragg, born 1795, is on the same page.  Not that that proves anything.  Just getting started.  Burton's profile says you have a death certificate.  Is no father listed on it?

"United States Census, 1850," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M4BW-C57 : 12 April 2016), Burton Gragg, Caldwell county, Caldwell, North Carolina, United States; citing family 60, NARA microfilm publication M432 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.).
