James McAninch (b.ca.1786) was last seen on the Giles County, Tennessee, Tax List of


1812 [6], and in the Casey County, Kentucky, Commissioners Books, 1817 Taxes [4] (a).


James McAninch's records are lost after these tax records in Casey County, Kentucky,

and Giles County, Tennessee. At this time, other McAninch family members went west

into DeSoto County, Mississippi, and/or Memphis, Shelby County, western Tennessee,

and/or across the Mississippi River into Arkansas, and/or father southwest into Texas.


James McAninch (b.ca.1786) cannot be found on any of the 1820, 1830, 1840, or 1850


Census Records, not in Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, Indiana, Illinois,

Missouri, Iowa, Texas, nowhere in the United States.


There are still many unanswered 'William McAninch' and 'James McAninch' questions:

a. There are no records of James' mother, and no records of James’ birth itself

b. Did William have an earlier (first?) wife (probably mother of James, son b.ca.1786)?

c. Where was William McAninch during the 1770’s? And during the 1780’s?

d. Where were William (and James) in the 1790 First Census? And during 1790-1795?

e. What happened to James McAninch? (born ca.1786, William’s first known son)
