I am a descendant of James Brittain and Delilah Stringfield who went to Buncombe Co. in the 1780's. They then went to the area that is now Henderson Co. and settled in the Mills River section. A marker in honor of James Brittain is located in the yard of Mills River Presbyterian Church. I would like to hear from anyone working on this family. I have a copy of the book, The Genealogical Study of James Brittain by Shirley Cawyer. James' daughter, Mary, married Thomas Edwards. Their daughter, Narcissus, b Feb. 22, 1813, married John Rees (Reese); their family moved to northeast Alabama in late 1830's.
