bullet  Noted events in his life were:

1. Story. 1389,1396 James was shown as still being on his father's property in 1805 when Hugh made his will and divided his land, saying "..James to have the part where he now lives...", but moved his family to York County, SC, where he bought land in 1817 on Fishing Creek, six miles east of York on the Old York-Rock Hill road, and remained there the rest of his life. He may have moved his family first to Chester Co., SC, as a James McCain family is listed there in the Census of 1810. Children are Alexander Hamilton m. Naomi Neely, Margaret, Hugh, John Cubit m. Jane Ingraham, Eleanor m. James Anderson, Sarah m. Henry Goldson, James Monroe m. Martha Elizabeth Roberts, Jane, and William Grandison. Details and descendents of children are also listed.

2. Story. James McCain Goldson Letter of February 16, 1902 (posted at (Excerpts from the Letter. Whereabouts of the Full Letter Unknown) Goldson, Oregon, 2-16-1902, J. F. McCain. My Dear Cousin, ". . . . our grandfather (James McCain) who was born in 1763 and died in 1846 at the age of 83. Our great-uncle Joseph (the 7th), when I last heard of him, was living in Georgia and was 92 years old and able to attend to his farm. The 5 older Bros were all soldiers in the Revolution and were captured in the Battle of Camden, but all lived to raise large families. . . . ." Your cousin, J. M. Goldson
Note: If the above reference to the age of Joseph Nutt McCain was correct, then it can be assumed that he was still living in 1870 and could have been located still in Calhoun County, Alabama, or in adjoining Cleburne County which was created in 1866 out of part of Calhoun County, or back in Georgia, in some county where he was likely to have had children living. After he did not appear in the 1860 census record in Chattooga County, Georgia, no 1870 records were checked. It is possible that, whatever county he may have died in, his family Bible showing family records would be in the possession of the children he was with at that time. (Author of above note unknown.)
Note: As regards so far unidentified McCain or McCain families in the area of Walker and Chattooga County, Georgia, and adjoining Cass County (which became Bartow County in 1861), there is some indication that members of at least one other family group may have been in that area in about the same period. (Author of above note unknown.)
Note: Other information states that one James McCain who was born near Waxhaw, North Carolina, had first gone to near Knoxville, Tennessee, and then later had moved his family and finally settled near Lineville, Clay County, in Alabama. His children thought to be seven boys and a girl known only as "Sis" included the names of Seaborn, Henry Box, and a James. On land said to be donated by Seaborn McCain, old grave stones at Olive Branch Cemetery near Lineville, Alabama show:

Seaborn McCain B:1810 D:1884
Sallie McCain B:1807 D:1869

W. A. McCain B:1840 D:1886
Cynthia Barfield McCain B:1854 D:1911

James E. McCain B:1830 D:1886
Minerva McCain B:1828 D:1895

James McCain and his wife were said to have been the first to have been buried there, but no information was given about grave markings, if there were any.

(The name of the girl "Sis" was Jane McCain. Henry Box McCain, born 1812, married 12-22-1836, Rebecca Lane Poole in Tennessee and settled first 12 miles north of Wetumpka, Elmore County, Alabama, then in 1858 moved to Montgomery, Louisiana, where he lived out his life. The origin of these families is still very much in doubt as of this compilation. (Author of above note unknown.)

3. Military Service. 1384 Soldier in Revolutionary War.


James married Sarah CUBIT.1396 (Sarah CUBIT was born in Ireland.)
