21 Jan 1763-16 Dec 1842, m. Nancy (MARTIN) HUGHES, b. 4 Dec 1763, daughter of William MARTIN and Rachel DALTON. NOTES: A lineage book of the National Society of Daughters of American Colonists [DAC], Volume 1 1-1000, 1929 - Compiled by Ida Powell Jenkins & Ruby Haskins Ellis, Washington DC - lists her as Nancy MARTIN. His birthdate was given in the Flynt family Bible. Another family record listed it as 7 Jun 1768. She was previous m. to her 1st cousin, Archelaus HUGHES, Jr. The 1782 Henry County tax rolls show James had 4 horses of his own when he was just 19. In the will of his father Frederick above, James received the "big Dutch Bible." He was sworn in as an ensign [3rd lieutenant] in the militia in 1789, at the home of brother-in-law Augustine THOMAS. The will of William MARTIN, Nancy's father, bequeathed her one of his slaves ("Phebe") in 1808 [web site: "Slaves and Slaveowners of Stokes County, North Carolina"]. Patrick County records from 1814 show James assisted in inventorying the estate of Robert MAYO, and in 1816 purchased property from the estate of William SMITH, Jr.
