James McArthur was one of the original settlers on the north side of Hays Swamp and on the
North Carolina State line; he married a Miss Campbell and raised a family of three sons and four daughters.
The eldest daughter, Effie, married Gadi Braswell. Another daughter married Richard J. Millsaps. The
other two daughters, Katie and Jennie, never married, and both of them died at advanced ages since the
war. Alexander, John and James were his three sons. Alexander and John never married and James married
Sarah McDonald, daughter of Neill McDonald, in the "old Fork".
