      James Melton was born ca 1734 in Orange County, North Carolina, and died after 1815 in Moore County, North Carolina. His wife's name is not known.

      The Melton Ledger says of James Melton:

      "James Melton, the great-great-grandfather of W. F. Melton, lived and raised his family in Moore Co., N. C. He had 7 sons and several daughters. One daughter married a Sheffield and lived most of her life in St. Clair Co., Ala. She was the mother of a large family of children.

      "The sons of James Melton were Ansel, James, John, Robert, William and Noah. (The other is forgotten.)"

      The Will of Robert Melton, made in Orange County, N. C., on April 24, 1759, and Certified in September Court 1759, says, "I Give and bequeath unto my Eldest sun James Melton one Puter Dish to valleu of five Shillings..." Robert Melton's Will does not leave James Melton any additional bequest and, in fact, does not refer to him again.
