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.
5 Dec 1809. James C. Haden was witness for the marriage bond in Campbell Co VA of Tyre Smithson and Seley Merrill.
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.
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.
Nancy was likely the daughter of Edmund Johns of Campbell Co VA. CAMPBELL COUNTY, VIRGINIA, WILLS & INVENTORIES 1782-1847, William Lindsay Hopkins, 1989. WB 8, p.103.
