[NB: In review of the names, I noticed Capt. William James listed as head of household. I believe head of household was Capt.John James. This family does appear to be that of John James and wife Esther Denison. I believe William James who died in the Big Bottom Massacre January 2, 1791, was son of Capt. John James. -- John Allison]
