The James Family Connects With Allen Jacob Baggett

Stephen James, 1821-1872, buried at County Line Church south of Lithia Springs with wife Martha, 1826-1912. (Her maiden name is given in various printed sources as Shipley, Shipleigh, Sheightleigh, and Shippey.)  Stephen is named as a son in the will of Stephen James, Sr. (of Cobb County); will was probated in Campbell County on 1 May 1842. Others named are wife Mary and daughters Miney Hill, Mary Holland, and Pursy, wife of Robert Pressly. A sketch of Joseph S. James in the 1895 Memoirs of Georgia states that the elder Stephen moved from Newbern County, NC to Walton County, GA about 1805 and lived there in 1840.

In 1850 widow Mary James (born ca. 1787 in NC) lived in Campbell adjacent Lidia (Mills) McGouirk, born ca. 1795. Lidia was the widow of Seth McGouirk (died 1827 Jasper County, GA), ancestor of the McGouirks of Douglas County (sketch of her son William N. McGouirk in Georgia’s General Assembly of 1878, by S.A.Echols. William N. James married Elizabeth, daughter of Stephen Baggett. He was State Representative of Douglas County and Sheriff of Campbell County). Widow Tinney James also lived in Campbell in 1860 nearby the John James family, 1808-1881, both aged 74 in 1860.

Stephen James was an early settler of the Chestnut Log District area that became the Salt Springs District and was Justice of the Peace. Affidavits by their son Joseph S. James state that their home was one-half mile from Capt. Jonathan J. Bowen when Bowen raised his Confederate Company, the “Salt Springs Guards”), as noted in CSA pension file of Mrs. S. J. Rice.
