This James Thetford first shows up on the 1790 census report of North Carolin.

It is the opinion of researchers that James Thetford was the father of the following men; John. R Thetford, Wm. Billy Thetford Sampson Thetford, Knott Thetford, and James Thetford. Sampson moved to Ill with our Wm. Billy Thetford about 1836. Knott Thetford was killed in War of 1812, while serving with Wm. Billy in Battle of New Orleans, under General Andy Jackson. James does not appear on any records in KY , after 1798.
