I have no information about a James Poag(e). Acc. to 'The Descendants of Robert and John Poage (Pioneer Settlers in Augusta County, VA)' compiled by Prof. Andrew Woods Williamson, Henry Martyn Williamson and John Guy Bishop, Robert Poage immigrated with a brother named John.

Page 2 says, 'John Poage, younger brother of Robert Poage, appears in the Orange County records in June 1739, as head of a commission which viewed and located a road from the North Mountain in Beverley Manor to the top of the Blue Ridge and thence to the bounds of Goochland County. His home was nine miles south of Lexington on the Natural Bridge road in the Fancy Hill neighborhood. They thus came from Ireland by way of Philadelphia in or before 1739.

I only have copies of pages with my line of ancestry, so don't have any more info on John Poage.
