Thanks. Yes, I have that info already. It precedes my James by several generations.
the first James had John, William, Thomas, Rueben, and James Jr.
John Sr. had John Jr., Reuben (this is my GGG Grandfather, not the one form the previous generation), Jacob, and Nancy, with a half-brother James McHenry thrown in for good measure.
John Jr had James.
I did get in contact with the Wayne County Kentucky Historical Society, and they have some documents they're sending me.
And I know what you mean about names repating. John, James, and Reuben show up over and over, many times multiples in the same generation.
