Journal*"James Balkcom" appeared in the 1850 census in the household of Lemuel and Jemima Balkcom as an 8 year old male. In 1860, in the same household, "James Balkcum" was listed as age 19, listed last after all other children rather than first as his age would suggest. Possibly James is a brother of Lemuel rather than a son. If a son, the age gap of three years between James and the next oldest is not typical of this family that had a child every year beginning in 1845. For this compilation I'm still calling James a son of Lemuel.

"Tina", female age 4, born NC (not found in later census);

Bennett Baucom1

#1979, b. say 1785
Last Edited13 Jun 2003
CommentCandidate for father of James E. Balkcom due to Johnston County location in 1810. But Bennett married in 1809 and apparently had a stable family. The Baucom Book does indicate a son before 1810 gone by 1830, unnamed. This would be the u10 male listed in the 1810 census, but who is unnamed in the will. 
Birth*say 1785Wake County, North Carolina, USA; Census says 1765-84; Baucom Book estimates 17851,2 
Cen-Head*1810NC Johnston Co Census 1810; Johnston County, North Carolina, USA; "Baucum", males 1 26-44, 1 u10; female 1 16-25; 3 slaves1 
Comment*Baucom Book has lots on Bennett Baucom of Johnston County in 1810. Son of John Baucom and Fanny Jordan of Wake County. Married 7 May 1809 in Wake County to Delilah Ann (Della/Dilly) Dunn. In 1820 and 1830 lived in Wake County alongside his father. 
Will*25 August 1832will recorded 4 Feb 1833 Carroll Co, TN. Names wife and children.2
