  • The memorial for James McAfee on Find a Grave has his full name asJames WIllis McAfee.  The memorial comments that there is now nogravestone, and provides no source for his full name.  Several othergenealogies also have this full name for James.

    A McAfee genealogist states that their McAfee family records show nomiddle name for James.

    "The generational McAfee private family papers of my family do NOTshow a middle name of "Willis" for my direct generational grandfather,Honorable James McAfee Jr. buried in Bostic NC.  These graves are nolonger marked with the gravestones, but I know exactly where they arelocated, and have been there through time."

    Carolyn comments further on the FAG memorial page:
    "Honorable James McAfee, Jr, buried in the tiny hamlet of Bostic, NClocated on the NC border line to SC.  May it be known that, to date,no early NC courthouse record for this James McAfee Jr. reflects themiddle name name "Willis." ... All of the grave markers for theMcAfees and the Greens have disappeared from this gravesite in the oldBostic Brick Yard.  Nothing remains of the cemetery location but thelittle high rise where all were buried."
