It has been said that James Hope was an Irishman, whether born in this country or not, is not known. He spoke with a decided Irish accent. The census of 1850 lists children of this couple as having been born in Tennessee. He was a Justice of the Peace in Pike County in the 1820s. He is listed as the head of family in the 1816 census for Pike County, Mississippi. The Hope family lived on Bala Chitto Creek in Pike County, Mississippi.
