Hi Rachel, And Callicott/James researchers;

Agatha Harrison was John Bailey Callicott's mother,
So the Agatha, Rachel is looking for would have to be a
daughter etc. My connection is through their son William
Callicott who married Elizabeth Ashworth? John Bailey's
father was James. Sarah James was born abt 1746 to
Thomas James and unknown. I recently found this:


MARCH 1793
Pg 57 James Davis and Sarah his wife, formerly the widow of Thomas James, dec'd, Thomas
Hugh James and John James, sons of the sd Thomas James, dec'd, and Barkley James, infant
son of Thomas James, dec'd, by John Rawlins, his guardian, and John Callicott & Sarah his
wife, daughter of sd Thomas James,dec'd; Plaintiffs vs James Barnes, adm'r of Thomas James,
dec'd; Defendant - A suit in Chancery
It is directed and ordered that a division of the slaves named Frances, Bettie, Hannah,
Sam, James and Rosa, a child; together with the personal estate of Thomas James, who died
intestate, so far as respects the dower of the sd Plaintiff, Sarah, in the bill mentioned, be made
in a fair and equable manner, that is to say, one third of the slaves, and one third of the personal
estate, as her dower, the remaining two thirds in equal division to George James, Thomas Hugh
James and John James; to John Rawlins, as guardian of Barkley James; and to John Callicotte,
in right of his wife, Sarah, all sons and daughters of Thomas James, the intestate.
And it is ordered that Mack Goode, Hillary Moseley, Edmund Moseley and Langston
Bacon, or any three of them, do make and partition an allotment thereof, and report the same to
this court.

I do believe Sarah might have been his second wife,
her maiden name is Sarah Connolly daughter of George
Connolly! That being the reason Barkley was under a
guardians care and I wonder if the John Rawlins was kin to
first wife? I have not done any research on the family being
in NC yet and just recently found out about Charlotte Co. VA
connection for this Callicott and James family!
