About 1756 or 1757, James and Anne moved their family from Isle of Wight County VA to Granville County in NC.
Granville County was created from Edgecombe in 1754 ( Map), then it became Bute in 1764 ( Map), and finally Warren was created in 1779 ( Map). Bute was name of the Prime Minister of King George III and the residents did not like that so they split up Bute County in 1779 into Franklin and Warren Counties.
Son Moses was a Revolutionary War soldier. According to colonial Bute County records, his will was dated Dec 9, 1776 and administered on Feb 12, 1778. The will left "all estate, negro & all my portion in hands of [stepfather] Mr. Randolph Hazilwood to go to my brother Wm. Maddrey, when probated."
According to Warren County marriage records, son William ("Madray") married Millender Saintsing on Feb 21, 1784. On Nov 1 of the same year he was the best man for his stepsister Lucy Hazilwood's wedding to Joseph Stallings. Two years earlier, son John ("Maddra") married Cloey Saintsing. So two of Anne's sons married sisters.
