son of James, the First Broyhill
| James Jr. was born in
Wilkes County, NC on July 24, 1798. He married Clarissa Harlow
Johnson there on June 28, 1820. One family member said that she
was related to President Johnson. They left Wilkes County in the
fall of 1820, because James was opposed to slavery. Clarissa
gave birth to their first child, William Irving Broyhill, in Tennessee
the following year. They remained in the blue Grass State until
the fall of 1829, because an undated letter of William Irving states
that they arrived in Illinois in 1830. James Jr. died in
Tazewell County, Illinois on
October 7, 1849.
