I have some info on James and Rhoda, but would appreciate some clarification on James birth year. Does anyone know where he's buried? Is there a stone or some record showing his birth year?

I have James in the 1790 census as 16+, in 1800 as 16-25. The latter would put him being born no later than 1775. I know in 1832 he swore an affidavit that he participated in the Rev. War. In what capacity I have no idea as I have yet to view the document. Was he a soldier or a drummer or flag carrier, etc?

Can anyone tell me if they have reviewed the census records from 1810 through 1830 to try to closer establish his age? If he was born c1774 then he would have been about 18 at the time of his marriage. If he was born c1765 then he would have been about 27. With being born in 1765 that would still put him as a child serving in the War.

Comments, thoughts? Please emial me and we can exchange info and thought.
