He married Nancy Edwards, Jan 30 1839, Muhlenberg County, Kentucky.1,3,4,5,6  Nancy, daughter of David Edwards, Jr. & Alice Johnson1,3,4, was born 18191,3,4 [about 18182], Muhlenberg County, Kentucky1,3,4.  

In spite of the fact that James and Nancy were married in Muhlenberg County in 1839, and their daughter Martha was reportedly born in the same county in 1841, James does not appear to be anywhere in the 1840 census of Muhlenberg County, Kentucky.7  They were probably living within someone else's household8 (the 1840 census shows only the name of head-of-household).
