      JAMES BANKS CADDELL, born (1730), according to family tradition came
      from Ireland to the Colonies. He was first reported living during 1751
      in Craven County, NC, where he married and later moved to Cumberland
      County, NC by 1767. Moore County, formed in 1784, became the home for
      this group of CADDELL's. Some members of the family still live in the
      area. In a letter from Isaiah "Sie" CADDELL of Sanford, NC, dated 19
      Jun 1933, he stated that James (Banks) CADDELL was born in Ireland.
      However, I have seen no record showing his place of birth. One
      researcher showed James married Catherine Black of Craven County, NC.

      Records of the National Archives, Washington, DC, listed James
      CADDELL's service as a foot soldier from Craven County, NC, dated
      January 6, 1751, commanded by Captain Thomas Graves, from the
      "district from the lower side of Sow West Crick to the town bounds."
      The muster roll dated 15 Oct 1754, listed Private James CADDEL.

      Deed records of Craven County, NC showed the following:
      February 21, 1753, James CADDELL purchased 162 acres on the "east side
      of Southwest Creek ...."
      October 20, 1762, from Thomas Thames to James CADDELL, 100 acres, Book
      2, page 514. James sold the land on September 26, 1771 to John
      Carlton.
      October 20, 1764, an act of annexing part of Craven County to Dobbs
      County, NC, "...a line from Southwest Bridge near James CADDELL's to
      Carnegy's old field and Rattle Snake branch, then a direct line to
      William Randoll's Mill on Trent River...."
      James CADDELL was listed in the Craven County tax rolls for 1753, 1762
      and 1764.

      (From the State Library of NC):
      Craven was first created as Archdale Precinct of Bath County in 1705.
      The name was changed about 1712. It was named in honor of William Lord
      Craven, one of the Lords Proprietors of Carolina. It is in the eastern
      section of the State and is bounded by Carteret, Jones, Lenoir, Pitt,
      Beaufort and Pamlico counties. The present land area is 708.43 square
      miles and the population in 2000 was 91,523. The county seat was first
      called Chattawka, or Chattoocka, and later. in 1723, Newbern. New Bern
      - the law fixed the spelling in 1897 - is the county seat.

      Cumberland was formed in 1754 from Bladen. It was named in honor of
      William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland, third son of King George II.
      Cumberland was the commander of the English Army at the Battle of
      Culloden, in which the Scotch Highlanders were defeated in 1746. Many
      of them came to America, and their principal settlement was in
      Cumberland County. Cumberland was changed to Fayette County in early
      1784, but the act was repealed at the next General Assembly, which met
      in November, 1784. It is in the southeastern section of the State and
      is bounded by Sampson, Bladen, Robeson, Hoke, Harnett and Johnston
      counties. The present land area is 652.72 square miles and its 2000
      population was 302,963. The county seat was first called Cumberland
      Court House. In 1762 Campbellton was established at Cross Creek with
      provisions for the public buildings. In 1778 Cross Creek and
      Campbellton were joined and the courthouse was ordered to be erected
      in that part of the town known as Cross Creek. In 1783 Campbellton was
      changed to Fayetteville in honor of Lafayette. Fayetteville is the
      county seat.

      Cumberland County, NC records included a deed dated 3 Jul 1767 which
      showed James purchased 150 acres from Thomas McLendon Jr. for a sum of
      £50. The records also showed James deeded a parcel of land to John
      Carleton in 1771. On 18 Jan 1773, James CADDELL proved a deed for
      William Richardson and his wife Elizabeth. He later received a grant
      of 200 acres on 24 Mar 1773.

      Moore was formed in 1784 from Cumberland. It was named in honor of
      Captain Alfred Moore of Brunswick. a soldier of the Revolution and
      afterwards a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. It is
      in the south central section of the State and is bounded by
      Cumberland, Harnett, Hoke, Scotland, Richmond, Montgomery, Randolph,
      Chatham and Lee counties. The present land area is 697.74 square miles
      and the 2000 population was 74,762. The act establishing the county
      provided for the erection of the public buildings. In 1795 an act was
      passed which stated that the location of the courthouse was
      inconvenient; it named commissioners to purchase land near the center
      of the county and erect a new courthouse. In 1796 an act was passed
      establishing Carthage on land where the courthouse was to stand. In
      1803 an act was passed naming commissioners to lay out a town and
      build a courthouse as directed in the 1796 act. In 1806 Carthage was
      changed to Fagansville. In 1818, Fagansville was changed back to
      Carthage. Carthage is the county seat.

      Moore County records showed a plat dated October 20, 1767, listing
      James CADDELL located on McLendon's Creek above the mouth of Tom's
      Creek, three miles west of the Carthage post office.

      Land was listed for James CADDLE (CADDELL), 24 May 1773, 200 acres,
      Cumberland County, NC, lower side of McLendons creek, south of Deep
      river (north part of what became Moore county in 1784), joining Thomas
      McLendon

      The 1790 census of Moore County listed the following:
      John Milton Glascock - 1 male (16+), 2 males (-16), 2 females
      James Caddell - 4 males (16+), 2 females

      William Caddell - 1 male (16+), 2 females
      John Caddell - 1 male (16+), 2 males (-16), 1 female

      James Banks Caddell’s son, Daniel, was administrator of his estate, 7
      May 1804, Moore County, NC.

      A Moore County tax roll for 1815 listed the following:
      Jonathan Caddell 100 acres $150
      William Caddill Sr. 150 acres $300
