Based on circumstantial evidence and family movement patterns, James Coon is probably the son of Henry Coon, b. about 1760, place unknown. James had a sister Barbary, b. abt. 1787 in SC and brothers William, b. abt 1790 in SC, John, b. abt 1791 in SC and Henry L., b. abt 1793 in SC. The family was placed in Jackson Co. GA in 1799 and was possibly living there a couple of years earlier. By 1816 some of the family was living in Twiggs Co., GA. In the 1830 census,  Henry Sr., John and James appear in Dale Co., AL while Henry L. is still in Jackson Co., GA. Henry L. moved to Dale Co., AL by 1835. James and his brother Henry L. both settled and raised large families in Dale (later Coffee) Co., AL.
