When I first started, I did not keep my sources either. Plus I threw away some paperwork I shouldn't have.
Anywyay, I believe my Jacob Whitehead and your James are brothers. They were born in Edgefiel SC At one time, my Jacob moved to GA then back to SC. Then on to Henry Co., AL. before 1830. There is a Mathew Whitehead married to Mary Jane Godfrey in Henry Co.
Your James was in Edgefield on 6 Feb 1792 when he witnessed a land acquisition by John Hester from Wm Melton.
James purchased land from Wm Melton about the same time. In 1797, he bought 100 acres of land.
At one point, I was advised Jacobs parents were Thomas & Lucy Whitehead. Also, somewhere, I was told they were from Orange Co. NC and before that MD.
I have put this aside for awhile as I can find no online connections.
