he exchanges land with his son William.

It is inferred that the first child of James and Elizabeth
Famham married Rhoda Taylor, — some James did, and
apparently about this time. If his son James is the one
who married Susannah Coombs, then Susannah was eight
years older than her husband, but this is possible. Among
the children of Mary, who married Bigford Spooner, are
to be found the names of Comfort, Barnabas, and Rhoda,
all uncommon names, and all significant. Mary's first
child was bom in 1779. There was a James hailing from
Douglas, and a Comfort from Worcester Co., and we are
told that Susannah Coombs used to live in Douglas, and
that in her old age she liked to talk of that town where
she may have been born. Comfort has record as follows :
