James McDonald served in the Revolutionary War from Burke County, North Carolina. He fought Indians on the Catabaw River in 1776, was on the Rutherford Trace expedition, and was in the battles of Stono Ferry, Camden, Ramsour's Mill, and the Siege of 96. McDonald was one of McDowell's skirmishers at the Cowpens, "ordered out to meet General Tarleton and bring on the action," in advance of the main militia and regular army lines.

James McDonald was not in the Continental Line, but always a militiaman.

In 1797, James married Sarah Cox in Randolph County, North Carolina. They moved to Tennessee in the early 1800s.
