His name is given as James Crenshaw Haden and his mother's name as Susan in DAR Lineage #65801. In the Haden book, he is James Cater.
Anthony Haden's will names sons Richard and James.
Is it possible this James moved to Logan Co KY about the time his father moved to Christian County? James Hayden found in the Tax Rolls of Logan Co - 1826, 1828, 1829, 1830. Perhaps simply declaring his tax in Logan Co - daughter born in 1829 said to be born in Christian Co.

Campbell Co Petition to the Legislature, dated 8 Dec 1810. James C. Haden asks for an act authorizing him to bring five slaves (Jude, Pharoah, Diley, Cornelius & Robert) owned by his father, Anthony Haden, in North Carolina, into Virginia. [Posted on Virginia Genealogy Trails online.] Note: I believe the slaves were in North Carolina - there's no indication his father Anthony himself lived there, although two of his uncles certainly did.
Sons James and Richard are named in his father Anthony's Will in 1827. James and brother Nathan were executors of Anthony Haden's Will.
A law suit in Todd Co, 1828, was for the recovery of a slave belonging to the children of James' half-brother Nathan - a slave given them by their grandfather Anthony Haden. The suit was brought by James C. Haden, their next friend.
There is a James C. Haden living in Christian Co for the 1830 census, p.2, in Hopkinsville. There were several children in the household: a male 10-15 and one 15-20 [are these sons Richard & James?], James age 40-50; a female under 5 [Virginia Frances], one 5-10, one 10-15, one 20-30 and one 30-40 [Rebecca].
From History of Christian County Kentucky, by Charles M. Meacham, 1930.
"A Double Hanging - Cassy and Squire" - this article describes the murder of Mrs. Miller who was shoved into a well by Cassy a negro girl belonging to Wm Grey who then implicated Squire, a young negro man belonging to Mrs. Rhoda Clark. Squire and Cassy both maintained that John Miller had instigated the deed. Trials were separate. Cassy was very ill, but declared guilty and ordered put to death. Squire was arraigned and charged with being an accessory. J. C. Haden was on the jury and brought the verdict, "We, the jury find the defendant guilty as charged. J. C. Haden, one of the jury". The two slaves were hanged together 2 Oct 1833, the 3rd & 4th hangings in the county. John Miller was also tried and convicted but escaped from jail and was never recaptured.
Probably died in Kentucky according to Irene Cook, but she had year of death as 1840. I have not found him in 1840.
There is in Fluvanna Co VA in 1840, a James I cannot identify who is at that time age 20-30, or born between 1810 and 1820. He had a spouse of the same age and two daughters under age 5. I cannot place James anywhere else in the Haden family - the others are younger or older by several years. I don't know if this is James Carter's son, or some unrelated Haden.
