    James East, Sr was born Abt 1735 , probably in Henrico Co VA, and died abt 1809-1812 in Oglethorpe County GA OR Robertson County, TN. He married Eushan Abt 1758 in Lunenburg Co VA. She was born Abt 1740 in VA, and died abt 1809-1812 in Oglethorpe County GA OR Robertson County, TN
    The identity of his parents UNKNOWN at this time, but he is believed to be a direct descendant of Thomas East Sr who had settled in Henrico County, Virginia during the mid 1600's, possibly immigrating from England with other relatives during that time.

    James East first appears in the various records of old Lunenburg County, Virginia during the mid 1750's & was associated with settlers who resided along the Meherrin River, Cox & Allen Creek area of what is now southern Mechlenburg County.
    ***********
    Feb 1756 - Lunenburg Co VA (Court Records)
    THOMAS EAST, orphan of THOMAS EAST, deceased came into court (and being of lawful age for that purpose) made choice of JOHN EAST to be his guardian, who with JAMES EAST and William Robertson, his securities, acknowledged bond.
    (Don's Note: This was most likely along Meherrin River/Cox & Allen Creek area which became Mechlenburg Co in 1765. Robertson as well as Isham, Joseph, James & John East resided there during this time.)

    3 April 1758 - Lunenburg Co VA (Land Records)
    William White to John White cons 40 shillings - 135 acres on both sides of Allen's Creek. Wit: JAMES EAST, Daniel Gorre, Edward Culbreath
    (Contributed by Debbie East) This was in the area near Cox Creek & South Meherrin River which later became Mechlenburg Co. Daniel Gorre (Gory) was also found on the Lunenburg Co tithable list in 1752 residing near Isham East Sr. Edward Culbreath was also in this area during the 1750's & 1760's)

    12 Dec 1759 - Lunenburg Co VA (Land Records)

    *************

    James East had married Eushan about 1758, while probably still in the Meherrin River area, but "drifted" to the west of there about 1760 & appears in the various records of Charlotte & Halifax Counties, Virginia during the mid 1760's. He & his family eventually became residents of Pittsylvania County after it was formed from Halifax County. There were several East families who also resided in this area as well as the Hardman, Edwards & Watson families who had become neighbors and close friends. Around 1777, these families settled in what is now southern Henry County, Virginia, not far from the North Carolina border. James purchased land along the Horsepasture Creek & resided in this area until 1787 or 1788.

    PLEASE NOTE: There was ANOTHER James East born during the 1730's who was a son of Joseph & Mary East of the Goochland & Louisa County, VA area. Joseph left a will, recorded in Louisa County, VA in 1772 which mentions his sons James, Josiah, Thomas as well as daughters Edith Pierce & Mary Cameron.
    This OTHER James East & his brother Josiah left Louisa County & settled in Lincoln County, KY during the 1780's and are accounted for on the reconstructed 1790 census for Lincoln Co KY. Josiah had a son named James, born about 1770, who was married in 1793 & is not believed to be the James listed as a head of household on that 1790 census. Several descendants of Josiah (of KY) seem to verify this information with their own personal research & family history charts.

    James East, Sr of Henry County, Virginia was in Wilkes/Oglethorpe Co GA in 1790 & verified by the tax records, etc.
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Notes: These East families of the Louisa & Goochland area of MIDDLE Virginia were fairly closely related to the East's who, during the 1740's, had settled in old Lunenburg County of SOUTHERN Virginia. This area later became Charlotte, Halifax, Mechlenburg, Pittsylvania Counties.
    James East Sr, of Henry County, is believed to have been a member of the "southern Virginia" group of East's and, as mentioned above, was listed in several land & court records during the late 1750's & 1760's. He seems to have been closely associated with old ISHAM EAST, who owned land along the Meherrin River/Cox & Allen Creek area of what is now Mechlenburg Co VA. James, Sr is also closely associated with Joseph & Josiah East, of this Meherrin River area, who were quite possibly the sons of Isham. Old Isham was a son of Edward East Sr & grandson of Thomas Sr Isham is believed by John Young and others to have been the brother of Joseph of Louisa County, mentioned above.

    JAMES EAST, SR & EUSSHAN his wife to John Watson part of a tract of land, it being part of a tract granted EAST 11 Apr 1780 which contained by survey 670 acres on Horsepasture Creek now laid off to be 400 acres more or less and joins JOSEPH EAST and Watson's own line for the consideration of 150 pounds.

    (Don's Note: It appears that soon after James SR sold the 400 acres to Watson, he passed the promissory note to James JR, his son, and James JR, then gave power of attorney to James SR to collect the money. This is probably when James East Jr decided to head for Georgia leaving his father to take care of his business, with the rest of the family to follow soon after. These witnesses were James Jr's wife Mary "Polly" Edwards & his sister Sarah who married Lewis Bradberry. Other probable sisters were Elizabeth who married William Elkins & Jean who married William Finch. All of these sisters & James Jr's brother Joseph East also settled in Oglethorpe Co GA.)

    8 Oct 1787 - Henry Co VA (Land Sale, Book 3, Pages 362/362)
    JAMES EAST to Thomas Jervis for 100 pounds sells land on both sides Horsepasture Creek being part of three surveys granted by patent to the said JAMES EAST in 1780...joins Cannon 210 acres surveyed by Jacob Cox, Dutton Lain's line, 667 acres, Dillen's line, Watson's, it being the same more or less 375 acres.
    (Don's Note: It appears that James Sr sold the remaining part of his land and prepares to join his son James Jr in Georgia)

    1787 - Henry County VA (Tax List)
    JAMES EAST
    (Note: In 1787 James East Sr was named on a Henry County Personal Property tax list owning one horse, but he was not taxed for it; again, this indicates that he may have just recently moved, making the tax non-collectable. *************************

    In 1787, James East Jr departed Henry County, Virginia leaving his father James Sr in charge of his affairs, traveling to Wilkes County, GA. It is believed James Sr & the rest of the family followed soon after. James Jr probably returned to Virginia to help with the arduous journey. James Jr had married Mary "Polly" Edwards, daughter of Edmund Edwards also of Henry County. James Sr's oldest son Joseph had previously moved on to North & South Carolina but also ended up in Wilkes County, GA during this time, settling on Milestone Creek, just north of his father & brother James Jr who were on Indian Creek. This area later became Oglethorpe County. James East Sr's daughters, Sarah Bradberry, Elizabeth Elkins, Jean Finch, and Mary Galloway also settled in Oglethorpe County.

    It appears that both James East Sr & Jr defaulted on their taxes in Wilkes Co GA in 1790 & traveled to the wilderness of what is now Robertson County, TN. James East purchased land along Spring Creek of the Red River area. They returned to Oglethorpe County, GA by 1793 where James East Sr purchased more land along Indian Creek in 1796. James Jr's father-in-law, Edmund Edwards, is believed to have also gone to the Red River area of TN during this time & returned to Georgia with the East's.

    By 1809, James Jr and his father-in-law Edmund Edwards moved back to Robertson Co TN where James claimed his father's land on Red River. It is not known for sure if James Sr and wife Eushan traveled with them, but they died sometime between 1809 and 1812, either in GA or TN.

    1790 - Wilkes Co GA (Tax Return of Defaulters, CPT Patton's District)
    JAMES EAST SR, JAMES EAST JR, and ROBERT EAST
    (Don's Note: From 16 & 30 Oct 1790 Default List in the Augusta Chronicle, code AA signifying individuals owning land on Indian Creek which later became part of Oglethorpe County. The fact they defaulted on their taxes may indicate their trip to Robertson County, TN during this time. They returned to Oglethorpe County by 1793, where James Sr witnessed his friend JOHN HARDMAN's will.

    EDMUND EDWARDS was not listed on 1790 Tax List and was believed to be in Robertson County, TN also. JOSEPH EAST, son of James East Sr, appeared on the regular Tax List for 1790 in Tiller's District, Code CC indicating land on Milestone Creek, just north of Indian Creek, where James Sr & Jr resided)

    1793 - From "Red River Settlers" Page 105, Land Grants Issued by North Carolina "Grant No. 1638 to James Earl (or East), dated 4, 27, 1793. Assigned to heirs of James East. Warrant No. 1420 for 640 acres. Recorded Book E-5, p. 118. Tennessee County on Spring Creek."
    Don's Note: This is James East Sr & family who left Henry County, VA before 1790 & settled on Indian Creek of Wilkes County, GA. It is believed James Jr left in 1787, blazing the trail, with his parents & other members of the family following soon after. They evidently went to TN by 1790 and resided there for a couple of years before returning to GA by 1793. Evidently, James East Jr left Oglethorpe County, GA about 1809 & returned to this area on Red River to claim this land which remained in his father's name. It is unknown if James Sr went back to TN with his son, but it is possible he died in Oglethorpe Co GA about the time James Jr began that journey north.
    Spring Creek flows from the south to north THEN east & west along the northern part of present day Robertson County, TN (less than a mile from Logan County, KY) and empties into the Red River. This area was part of Tennessee County, North Carolina until 1796 with Tennessee statehood & the establishment of Robertson County)

    (Debbie East's note: There is a connection of James East, Sr. to this Goolsby family. Wade Goolsby the father, was from Rowan Co. NC before arriving in Wilkes Co. GA. James SR. may ?? have resided in NC at least in 1788 prior to joining his son James Jr in Wilkes/Oglethorpe Co. GA)

    1795 - Oglethorpe Co GA (Land Records)
    Joseph East, the son of James East SR, was granted title to 252 acres in Jackson Co in 1805 . And from Union Co SC in 1801 Joseph East and Milly East sold land in Jackson Co GA.
