There was a request for information about a James Frady who married Nancy E. Clemons in Buncombe County Dec. 7, 1873 in the Frady Family Archives Newletter several years ago. I will make an attempt to identify him thru the census records. I don,t believe this James was able to read or write as his age varies too much thru the census records.
1830 Buncobe County census-- James is living with his mother Elizabeth age 15/20. 1840 Buncombe County census --James is listed as age 20/30. 1849 a James bought land in Bumcombe County. 1850 Buncombe County census-- James age 36, Rhoda age 40 and Henry age 6. This most likely is abt. his correct age as he would have been 16 in 1830, 26 in 1840. 1860 Bumcombe County census-- James age 51 ( most likely should have been 46) Rhoda age 50, Henry age 16. (We do not find Henry in any later census--he most like died in the CSA war) 1870 Fairview, Buncombe County census-- James age 60 ( Most likely should have been 56) Rhoda age 68 ( most likely should have been 60). Rhoda died between 1870 and 1873. James age 56 married Nancy Clemons age 41 Dec. 7. 1873 in Buncombe County. 1880 Fairview, Buncombe --James age 61 ( most like abt 66), Nancy age 48 ( most likely is correct as she was 41 in the 1873 marriage. James died between 1880 and 1900 and most likely buried with his first wife Rhoda.
Nancy C. is found in the Fairview, Bumcombe cenus age unknown. Nancy E. Clemons Frady b. June 1830 d. Sept. 15, 1905 is buried in the Nexitt's Chapel Methodist Cementery at Fairview in Buncombe County. It appears from the Ruth Stroud Ford's request in the Frady Family Archives Newletter that Nancy Frady's grave is a single grave and James is not buried beside her.
Perhaps some insight into this James can be found as to what happen to his land he bought in 1849.
I have not seen all the actual records --so this is open for correction and comments.
