      1. FHL Film 1697868 and book "The Mangums of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Texas, Utah, and Adjoining States," by John T. Palmer, Ph.D. Santa Rosa, CA 95409, 1993, 3rd ed., pp. 33-34: "James Mangum, b. 2 Jan 1734, in Albemarle Parish, Surry Co., VA d. 15 Sept 1757, age 23, migrated with his parents into Granville Co., NC, at the age of about 13 years. He was in the Granville County Militia, 8 Oct 1754 at 20 years of age with his father and brothers, William Jr., James, and Samuel, and is called the son of William in the 1755 Granville Co. tax list d. 15 Sep 1757, NC, m. Sarah ____."
      In a footnote, the author notes: "Some doubt and confusion surrounds the identity of James Mangum's mother. John M. Mangum of Henrieville, PA, notes in the "Mangum Family Bulletin," Issue 35, p. 17, "John Bennett Boddie transcribes the Albemarle Parish Register as saying that James was the son of Martha (William's first wife) and that James was born on 2 Feb 1734, but Gertrude Richards transcribes the Albemarle Parish Register as saying that James' mother was Mary Person (William's second wife) and James was born on 2 June 1734."

      DEATH:
      1. After 6 Dec 1757 since this is the date inventory was returned for her husband's probate per the following note:
      FHL film 2056023-2056026, especially film 5 which contains Mangum-Adair materials. Title is "George Addison Mangum's Genealogical Collection" which is his lifetime work donated to library in 1998; he was born in Utah in 1922, of Blackfoot, ID and is perhaps a brother to Ivey Mangum Hale. One of the pages in his notes state:
      "James Mangum. James was born 2 June 1734 (1-A) in the Albemarle Parish, Surry County, Va. to William and Mary Mangum. James migrated with his parents into Granville Co., N.C. at the age of about 13 years. Little is known about him. He was in the Granville Co., Militia in 1754(5) at 20 years of age (with father and brothers) and is called son of William in the 1755 tax list. (6) His estate record shows that he died 15 Sept. 1757 at the age of 23, leaving a wife Sarah and one son unnamed. (2-B) Purchasers of his estate include Wm. Arthur and Samuel Mangham. No land dealings concerning James have been found." [Kerry's note: no idea what the numbers in parentheses mean.]
