James Lea of Caswell Co., NC

First of all, I apologize for opening what appears to be a can of worms, but I'm totally confused:

DAR lists a James Lea of Caswell Co., NC (Ancestor # A067574) with Patriotic and Civil Service during the Revolutionary War. Wife is given as Anne (maiden name not listed). The line continues to their daughter Adelphia Lea marrying Joseph Henderson, who was son of John Henderson and Sarah Brockman.

Although it's known that Nancy Henderson, daughter of Joseph Henderson, married Lawrence Bankston of Wilkes Co., GA, there seems to be disagreement as to whether Nancy was the daughter of Adelphia Lea or was by another wife of Joseph Henderson.

The Brockman line goes back some generations to the Madison and Todd families.

Is there any current consensus about these people? What is the truth? There were several James Lea's in Caswell Co., NC. Does DAR have it right? Or is it hopelessly muddled?
