At this point, it is imperative to move from the known - there are too many unknowns.
In one of the many books and papers written about the McCauleys, it mentions that the family story is that James Percival went to work for the "Wright Family" of Pine Level.
Now, I don't know if that was BEFORE or AFTER the Civil War, but it is worth a follow-up (especially if it was before the Civil War).
- Per gen. records, one Wright family was from Lunenberg Co., Virginia and moved to Georgia (Lincoln, Wilkes).
Another Wright was David F., son of Nathan and Mary Polly Fulton, who died in Pine Level around 1867.
Also, you should search the land records. Perhaps James bought his land from his 'employers'. This would give you another surname to research.
Finally, I would follow the SC/MO mention. It could have been an error on the part of the Census taker, but do not discount it.
Where is the connection?
Good luck, and please keep us updated.
