I previously wrote about another receipt from a Sheriff named William Carson. James W. Carson is the nephew of the Sheriff William Carson. James will eventually go on to become the Sheriff of Rutherford County from October 1838 to October 1842. James was born December 23, 1789 in Rutherford Co., NC. He was the son of General John G. Carson and Mary Withrow. He married Catherine Canselor (1791-1867)in Rutherford Co., NC on February 15, 1814. James died October 24, 1846. (source Lela Whisnant).
