PRIMARY SOURCES:

1. 1804, 22 May: Caroline Co, VA, marriages, part 1, page 8:
James Upshaw Jr. & Ann Upshaw; consent of Jeremiah Upshaw

2. 1810 census, Caroline Co, VA, page 931: (need enumeration)

3. 1820 census, Essex Co, VA, page 37: James W. Upshaw
1 male 10-15 (name unknown)
1 male 26-44 (James)

4. 1830 census, Caroline Co, VA, page 216 (James Upshaw household):
2 males 5-10 1 female under 5
1 male 50-60 (James) 1 female 30-40 (Maria Kidd Upshaw)

5. 1837, 26 May: Richmond Enquirer, page 3, col 6: death notice of Dr.
James W. Upshaw "of Caroline Co, Va":
Deaths. Died, on the 2d inst., Dr. James W. Upshaw, of Caroline County, Va., aged about 60 years. His death is very much regretted by his friends and acquaintances. In losing Dr. Upshaw, they sustained a very great loss, not only as a physician, but as a physician, but as a kind neighbor and a benevolent and hospitable man - his liberality to the poor overpowered the length of his purse. He has left behind four children; one of them is grown, and able to steer his course through this unfriendly world - the remainder of them are very young, but fortunately for them, they have fallen into the hands of a kind grandfather. Dr. Upshaw had been a member of the Baptist Church for many years.

COMMENTS:

1. James Wayne Upshaw was executor of his father's will (Note: this needs to be verified)

2. James Wayne Upshaw was a Second Lieutenant in the War of 1812.

3. Comment per Mrs. Grace Jared: "Dr. James Wayne Upshaw was 46 years old
when he married Maria Kidd. One DAR record (which one?) shows a marriage record to Elizabeth Nelson also; was he married three times? When he died in 1837 he left orphan children under 12 years of age and John Kidd and his wife of Caroline or King & Queen Co. raised them. (Note: is there a guardianship record of this?)

4. Some of the children of James Wayne & Maria (Kidd) Upshaw, perhaps from
DAR records, are shown to be:
1. James, b 1826, md. Minerva McGee
2. Allen, b 1830
3. Sallie (Sarah), b 1832, md _________ Markham
4. Kate (Catherine), b 1833, md _________ Riddlehoover.
These are all incorrect, as they are children of John & Tabitha
(Lawless) Upshaw.
