Some notes for James' sons come from the book Ancestors - Descendants of Charles Gatliff of Virginia and Kentucky, by Helen J. Black (on microfilm in Salt Lake City library);
also "The Kentucky Explorer"- April 1991, page 10:

John Esom Farris was one of  four brothers who came from Virginia to Lincoln County, Kentucky probably soon after the end of the American Revolution, and settled on the waters of Dick's (Dix) Creek- near Crab Orchid. Of these brothers, Nathan and Isaac were killed during Indian attacks on their homes in February of 1788. Earlier in October 1786 the other two brothers, John and Isham Farris, helped bury the dead after McNitt's Defeat in what is now Levi Jackson Wilderness State Park. After the establishment of the Wilderness Wagon Road in 1796 they were among early settlers in that section of what is now Laurel County.

Note: Isaac and Nathan were actually killed in February 1790.
