      Hello List,
      I am going to start listing my research on James Calvin Myrick born August
      12, 1791 Moore County, NC died Abt. 1880 in Mississippi ( Probably
      Tishomingo County)

      James Calvin Myrick was the son of Francis Myrick and
      Susannah Carroll of Moore County, North Carolina.

      He is listed on the 1820 Census of Moore County, NC
      1820 Census of Moore County, North Carolina.

      1 male under 10
      1 male 26-45
      1 female under 10
      1 female 16-26

      James Calvin Myrick married Sallie Richardson, the daughter of William and
      Elizabeth Richardson of Moore County, North Carolina.


      In the 1820's we know that James and Sallie along with members of Sallie
      Richardson's family left Moore County, North Carolina, and arrived in
      Lauderdale County, Alabama.

      From a letter written by Hiram Richardson ( Sallie's nephew) on June 11,
      1884.

      " I was the oldest of fathers family and quiet young to have as clear and
      distinct a recollection as I have of the approach of a covered wagon train,
      mostly drawn by oxen accompained by many men, women and children, cattle ,
      sheep, hogs, chickens, turkeys,last but not least dogs. This was quiet a eye
      opener to me,. Uncle Stephen RICHARDSON, for whom your father was named,
      Uncle Isham RICHARDSON with their large families and their belongings, their
      brothers-in-laws, that is men who married their sisters,viz; Uncle Jake
      STUTTS, Uncle John MOORE, Uncle Jim MYRICK and Uncle Jake MCGEE with their
      large families came. Some married and had small families and brought their
      belongings from NC to begin life anew in the wilderness of a new country.
      They all arrived after a toilsome journey across the mountains, the
      unbridged rivers and unbroken forests."


      "Uncle Jim Myrick and Aunt Sallie reared a large family. Some went west,
      other are still in their old home country. Some may have gone to Tennessee.
      After Aunt Sallie's death, sad but true, Uncle Jim shortened his life by
      excessive drink. He died in Mississippi since the war. Not withstanding his
      weakness on the drink line, he was honest, truthful and industrious."

      Alabama as follows

      A Walk Through the Past wriiten by William Lindsey McDonald Page 158
      " In the Early history of Green Hill was a the " Gun Manufacturing Center"
      for Northwest Alabama. This area was ideally located on Jackson Military
      Road used by pioneers going into the new west who needed well-made weapons.
      Hiram Kennedy established a gun plant at Green Hill sometime after 1823. His
      father, David Kennedy, joined him around 1836. David had been a gunmaker in
      upper Moore County, in North Carolina. His father, Alexander Kennedy, made
      the long rifle during the Revolutionary War, first in Pennsylvania, and
      later in North Carolina. In 1840, eighteen men were employed at the Kennedy
      Gun Factory in Green Hill, slaves were used in molding the barrels. In that
      year, a total of 428 small arms were produced.
      Other gunsmiths were soon in business at Green Hill, including some who
      arrived with the Kennedys. Jacob " Gunner" Stutts shipped rifles by wagons
      and boats.
      James Calvin Myrick's farm and gun shop were near Happy Hollow on Shoal
      Creek. A Veteran of the War of 1812, his first wife was said to have been
      full-blooded Indian.

      Note ********* In Lauderdale County, Alabama there were two Myrick
      marriages I can not placed in a family.
      These could be children of James from a first marriage.
      Ashley T. Myrick married Elizabeth Higgins July 28, 1842
      Azel Myrick married M. A. Coffee Jan 4, 1842
