James Campbell Kingsolver (1859-1933) is the youngest child of David Kingsolver (1805-1880) and his second wife (m 1850) Mary Jane More (1820-1884), life-long residents of Washington Co VA. David is the third son of Charles Consolver/Kingsolver (1774-after 1850) and (m 1799) Mary Ann Fitzpatrick (1779-before 1850). Charles grew up in Bedford Co VA and moved to Washington Co VA about 1798. Like many of his generation, he depended on scribes for the spelling of his name. He went by Consolver until 1810, but settled on Kingsolver thereafter. Charles' father was Jonathan Consolver/John Consolvo (1753-1809), and his stepmother was (m 1794) Milly Robinson/Robertson (after 1765- ?). Jonathan may have been an orphan. The Cumberland Parish Vestry Book records (1755) that Sarah Gill and John Jennings were paid for his upkeep. He served in the Virginia Militia and was hacked up severely at the Battle of Waxhaws after the fall of Charleston. He lived in Bedford Co VA after the war until 1808, when he joined his son Charles in Washington Co VA.
