James Lee Boggs, known fondly as Old Jimmy, was born in 1752 in either Scotland or County Londonderry, Ireland. He died in 1835 at Blaine, Lawrence County Kentucky. He made his living as a farmer and hunter. He had four children: Hughey, Eli, William and John.
Old Jimmy came to North Carolina from the old country during the 1780's. He later moved to Virginia near Stonega in 1792. Then he moved to Eolia, Kentucky and lived in a wood cabin with his wife and son Eli, who had also settled near Eolia at the time. Levi Boggs, one of Jimmy's grandsons, often visited him there.
According to his current gravestone, erected in 1993, James Boggs, born in 1752, died in 1835.
