It appears that James's half-brother Charles, had financial issues - perhaps even health issues. The tax records show that in 1823, Charles owned as much as 309 acres on the Gasper River - that had been entered by James McCutcheon, but sold to Charles by Thomas Proctor in 1820. By 1824, Charles had only 140 acres - and thereafter appears with no land at all. Charles had also owned two slaves and they disappear as well. The 1829 Logan Co tax list included a column for the number of children ages 4-14 and Charles had seven. In 1836 there is an entry for Charles Proctor's heirs and lists 340 acres on the Gasper- Charles's wife Elizabeth appears as a widow in the 1840 census. James had died in 1835, and Charles and Elizabeth were to have the right to live where they were living for their lifetime with the land to be divided among their children.

1830 Census. Logan Co KY
1830 Tax list from Logan County, KY Census & Tax Lists, 1820 & 1830, by Don Simmons & Laura Willis, 1995:
James first appears on the tax records of Logan Co in 1820, as a young adult male over 21, with a single horse and 230 acres on the Black Lick fork of the Gasper River, at least some of which was originally patented by Patrick McCutcheon. Through the years, he steadily added to his holdings - by 1835, which would have been for the previous year, he had a total of 679 acres on the Gasper River, 9 slaves, 16 horses, and 50 head of cattle. He listed a stud (stallion) for several of those years. Sally, his widow, appears on the tax lists beginning with 1836 - in 1839, Sally had 233 acres on the Gasper River, which would appear to be her dower portion of one-third - she did remarry.
