There are considerable debate . It appears most likely tha t James was a
son of John He was in the Granville area of north Carolin a as early as
1753 .





As to the father of James Crow, there is considerable debate. However, it is fair to state that it appears most likely that James was a son of John and only some form of proof needs be attained. Some evidence does exist in that nearly all of John Crow's younger children appear in the Carolina's with James and his off-spring. Some sources say that James and family were in Baltimore County and others claim it was Hartford County. Evidence points toward Hartford.

James was married twice while he was in Hartford County but he was in the Granville area of North Carolina as early as 1753. The Will of James Crow was witnessed on the 16th, day of July, 1792. Names sons John, James, Stephen, Reubin, Isaac, Abel, William Crow; daughters Hannah Brown, Abba Riller Pilkington, grandson Levy Crow, and granddaughter Anna Crow. He appointed two sons John and Stephen Crow sole executor of his will. No mention of a son Joshua. It is believed that Joshua preceded his father in death. Will on file in Chatham County, NC. James Crow must have died sometime prior to 7-16-1792, which is the date his will was probated. He does not appear on the census of 1792 (tax records). He and his family were members of the Baptist Church. See "A Genealogical Study of The William Marion Crow Family" by Reginald Crow, 1963. James does appear on the 1790 Tax records in the Hillsboro District along with John, William, Stephen, and Isaac. Examination of DAR 555815 and of the will of James Crow seems to prove that the men with James were indeed, his son's.

The history of the Crow's in America is an interesting one. In 1666, John and Ann Crowe were transported into Dorchester County, Maryland (transported meaning they would have been indentured and required to repay the cost of their passage). In 1671, one Gournay Crow immigrated (paid his own passage) and settled on the Blackwater River in Dorchester County on an estate he called "Crowe's Nest" or, as it was sometimes called, "Crowe's Lodge". In 1673, a Francis Crow was transported into Dorchester and in 1675, a Ralph Crow arrived. The relationships between these various Crow's is not known but that they were somehow related to Gournay, seems evident. Gournay added to his estate on at least three occasions: (1) Grant #557 - "Addition to Crowe's Lodge, to Gournay Crowe for 44 acres and surveyed on 4-12-1682." (2) Grant # 635 - "East Bilbeny/Billeny to Gournay Crowe for 56 acres, surveyed 9-10-1683." (3) In 1687, a patent was issued to Gournay Crowe in Dorchester County for 116 acres, called The Addition". The name Gournay has not, to date, appear to have been carried down through the family lines and therefore leaves some mystery regarding the man and why his name did not survive. There has nothing been found to suggest that John Crow was of the Dorchester Crow family.
