from a tree on ancestry

James was a Revolutionary soldier, serving four terms from Rowan Co.,North Carolina. Brothers Isaac, Jacob, and William also served in the War. James moved to Kentucky sometime after 1792, when he sold his land to brother William. He raised his family there before entering Harrison Co., Indiana by JUL 1813. James and Lyde moved with two sons, Andrew and John, and daughter Peggy (Wiseman) SECHRIST to Logansport, Indiana in 1830. He settled in Peru, Indiana with son John. Andrew moved about ten miles up the Wabash River, to Keller's Settlement (or Keller's Station)which is now Richvalley, Wabash Co., Indiana. It is unknown where daughter Peggy settled. She was on the 1830 Logansport, Cass Co., IN census.

Most of the information on James WISEMAN comes from hisRevolutionary Pension Application; the U.S. Census; and Rowan, Cumberland, and Harrison County Court Records, as they were researched by Robert D.WISEMAN, Family Genealogist/Historian. It was necessary to "Reconstruct" the family of James and Lyde Wiseman through extensive research of the Harrison County Records. It must be pointed out that chance of error is likely in the calculations of this family!

Little is known about the family of James Wiseman, due to destroyed records of that era (1792-1814) in Kentucky. One can only contemplate the period of time he spent in Harrison County, Indiana (1813-1830) before moving to Cass County in that state. There were other Wiseman families in Harrison County at that period of time and no one is sure about which is which. In fact, no one seemed to even be aware of the James Wiseman family that lived in Harrison Township during that period of time, nor did they realize that James left some family members behind, when he and children Andrew, John and Peggy Sechrist brought their families north in 1830. Some that seem nearly certain to be the children of James are: Isaac (of Clark County-1820 Census); Elizabeth, who married James Riley (29 Oct. 1818); Rebecca, who married [Joseph Longbottom (9 Jan 1820) unproven and doubtful]; James Jr., who married Nancy Byrn (15 Feb 1820); Andrew, who married Jerusha Keller, daughter of John and Jerusha (Barret) Keller (25 Oct 1825); John who married Hannah Venner (8 Feb 1827); and Jane, who married John Venner (4 Mar 1829).

There is one marriage in Cumberland County, Kentucky (Sary, or Sarah? toLewis Potter, 31 Dec 1801). James lived in Cumberland County at this time and certainly could have had a daughter old enough to marry by this date. The 1790 Rowan County Census shows him with three females in the household.

they have marraige as 1785 but no surname for lydia
