About James Roberson

He has been speculated as

  1. An otherwise unknown son of Daniel Robinson and Sarah Winfree.
  2. The James Robertson who was son of Thomas Robertson.

However, he was apparently a son of James Robertson, of Claiborne County, Tennessee.

James ROBERSON md Catherine HELVEY, probably about 1803, perhaps in Carter Co TN, where she lived after the death of her first "husband" Indian trader Joseph BARRON. He seems to have moved to Lee County, Virginia sometime after 1810, probably from Carter County. He does not appear on the 1810 Personal Property Tax List of Lee County. He bought 67 acres on Powell's Creek in Lee County from Jonathan TIPTON for $180 on 22 March 1813 (recorded 27 April 1813), and bought 40 acres from Laurence and Barbary FEATHERS for $113 on 9 August 1814. James Robinson made his will on 15 January 1835 and died shortly after. The will was witnessed by (his brother-in-law, husband of Joanna BARRON) John B. COLLIER, Francis GILLEY, and Isom COLLIER.
