      I have worked on Anne Sebastian every which way for years! I have concluded that Capt. John James and she were never married. The dates do not add up and the son Samuel was born 19 Nov 1738 and his sister Sarah b. 9 Apr 1746 AFTER we know John and Dinah were already married. I have even tried to discover whether Sebastian might be a married name for Anne. The other Anne, I have never heard of. Also note, there is no mention of any other heirs except the children by Dinah in John's Will.

      There are other John James who might provide clues.

      For example John2 James b. 1676 Overwharton Parish, Stafford Co. VA; WD 23 Jan 1725; WP 1 Mar 1725-6 St George Parish, Spotsylvania Co. VA [WB A, p. 24, Crozier, p. 1] m. Sarah Alice Sharp b. 1680 Stafford Co. VA. The son of this couple was named Hugh James [I need to check him out again].

      Note: In the Register of St. Paul's Parish, Stafford Co. VA is a Nicholas Sebastian d. 24 Dec 1735 who m. 29 Oct 1726 Anne ELLIOTT. This John2 James was brother of Thomas2 James of Potomac Creek b. abt 1675 m. 11 Sep 1699 Sarah [Mason] Barbee.
