As a matter of interest, see Daniel Boone relationship of Perthena - James' mother - as given in The Bigelow Family Genealogy, Vol.1.  Also, the father of Malinda (Callaway) Bigelow (wife of Rufus' brother), is believed to be Flanders Callaway, son of Col. Richard Callaway who served in the Revolution with Lieut. Daniel Boone.  Flanders Callaway married Jemima Boone, Daniel Boone's daughter.  A check with the Boone Family Association of California could verify this or you could check into the book:  "Descendants of the Boone and Bigelow Families, by Lillian Hayes Oliver.
