===============================

The following information given below was written many years ago by the granddaughter of James and Adeline (Della May Binam Thomason). It was given to Gary Binam who did most of the research on the Binam (Bynum) family.

During the Civil War, James hid out with his grandfather. James was 8 years old at the time and would have been taken into the Confederate Army as a drummer boy. His grandfather would also have been taken which for him wold have meant certain death as he was almost totally blind. They hid out under the bluffs and James would slip in home for food or his sisters or mother would try to get food to them. Their clothing was only rags and when snow was on, they nearly froze to death. At the start of the war they hid his grandfather in the fireplace. Finally James and his grandfather took to the bluffs in the mountains to hide. In the winter time there was barely any food to be found and they nearly starved to death besides being nearly frozen. They couldn't build fires as the soldiers were sure to be able to find them. When the snow was on the ground they couldn't go to the house for food as the soldiers would have been able to track them and find where they were hiding out. At home the women had to keep their silverware and dishes buried or the soldiers and bushwackers would destroy them. When they ran out of salt, they boiled the dirt in the smoke house and used the salted water from it. James helped his family plant a field of corn with a hoe. They had been eating some of the corn blisters. About 2 weeks before it was ready to harvest, the Bushwackers came and cut every stalk and fed it to their horses leaving the family to starve.

James lived with his widowed mother and brothers and sisters until shortly after the end of the Civil War when he apparently left home. He may have taken his brother Isaac with him because Isaac wasn't included in Rachael's family in either 1870 or 1880 census.

Family legend suggests that James was angry over the loss of his father and his mother's leaving him while she went to make a living washing clothers. about 1868 or 69, at a very early age, he may have been living with a girl named Liza Fultz. Liza was born about 1856 and "Married" at the age of 15. To this union were apparently born three children: Margaret, William (born 1873, died in 1936), and another girl. It is not known whether or not James and Liza Fultz were ever married, but the children never went by the name of Binam. Liza later married a Sisco and daughter went by name of Margaret Fultz Sisco. William was raised by Liza's brother, Lib Fultz, and used the name of Fultz for the rest of his life. Apparently James acknowledged these children, but his second wife, Adeline Phillips, wouldn't "let them come around".
