James Parker, born circa 1788 and died 1846 in Screven County, stated in affidavits found in William Caile's Revolutionary Pension File, that he was born and raised in the same neighborhood as William Caile. William Caile stated in these same papers that he was born in Dobbs County, North Carolina. James Parker Submitted the following affidavit: "State of Georgia, Bulloch County. I do hereby certify that I was raised in the same neighborhood with Capt. William Caile and am knowing of his having enlisted to serve in the Continental Amry of the revolution to the end the same given under my hand this 18 day of May 1832." John Mills, J P., also submits the following affidavit confirming James' statement: "Georgia, Scriven County.

Do these affidavits show that James Parker was born in Dobbs County, North Carolina?
