Buffalo Valley, Centre County, Pa. at the time of the Revolutionary
War. I don't know when he settled in Centre Co. Pa. His parents
may have lived here, also. Sometime after the war, he moved to
Clearfield co. Pa.
He had 5 brothers and one was named Cyrus. Cyrus moved to Ky.
sometime after the Revolutionary war.
I am also looking for any information on whether or not James
