James Barham:Just prior to this death in Greene Co Missouri, James was cited by President Abraham Lincoln as one of the last surviving Rev War soldiers! he moved to Greene Co Missouri about 1846 to join children who had migrated about 1837 to Greene County, Missouri after KY & TN. "James Barham was a great favorite of people in Greene County for he was a fine talker and told of his many war adventures and pioneer days in North Carolina and Kentucky. He also delighted in hunting and fishing and kept a pack of hounds to help him in his hunting excursions when he lived in Kentucky.....It is said that at 100 years of age he could still ride horseback for a distance of 20 miles. It is further stated by family members that he never wore spectacles (eyeglasses) and at 100 years of age could shoot game at the distance of 100 yards."DAR info to join:Soldier in Virginia .
