Notes for James Webb Proffitt:
James served in the Confederate Army as a Private in Company "K", 25th Regiment, North Carolina Troops during the Civil War. He entered the Confederate Army on July 23, 1861 in Buncombe County, NC for 12 months service and was discharged July 16, 1862. He was 41 years old and discharged because he was over 35 years. Martha took the children and went to live with her parents while James was off to war.

In a letter written by James on January 16, 1884, to his son, John Wesley, who was still in Texas, he indicated that he was not very well, but had a fine place to live in Black Fork, Scott Co., Arkansas. The place had the finest timber and was the best hog country he ever saw. He had hogs, cattle and horses that he had to feed through the winter. The place was near the Indian Nation line and his stock ran in the nation's property most of the time and the Indians pestered his stock a lot. Since he had not been there very long, he could not predict how successful the place would be. He said that he did not like the society in Arkansas as well as in Texas.

In another letter from James to John Wesley written April 14, 1884, he related that his health was worse, that he was not able to be up and about, but could sit up some. He hoped to sell his property in a week or two and move back to the little place on the Big Sandy in Texas. He asked John Wesley to quote prices on hogs and cattle in Texas. Records show that he never made the move. He died on September 24, 1884 at the age of 63 in Black Fork, Scott Co., Arkansas.
