Yes, I know about the familysearch.org Ancestral files. I know it is just a guide line. They put a disclaimer on the bottom the file stating it is up to the researcher to prove the truth in the file or words to that effect. It all has to be taken with a grain of salt. I stated that in a message several times ago. I stated that it was just to get me pointed in the right direction and now I am setting out to proove the truth of the line. I am visiting all kinds of county and state genfiles and getting tons of information that was. I have the websites from the various forum messages that I have visited and soon will go into them and get all I can out of them.
I sat here for about thirty years and had my family to my gg grandfather and that was it. Now I am quite sure James was married twice with something happening to his first wife. I have not found any children in the marriage and no deaths so I do not really know that part of it. I do knew he took off from Pennsylvania and headed for Ohio and his future wife followed sometime later and they married and had eight children. Facts out of a bible and other areas beside familysearch.org. The fact in familysearch.org are not true at all. They have him dying in 1913 in Wooster Ohio. The bible facts have him dying in 1906 as his son's house in Hamler, Henry County, Ohio. His wife dying in 1894 from a heart attack when she was carrying a 100 pound sack of grain loading a railroad car at an elevator in Ohio.
I was in the north Pacific going through the Aleutian chain of islands. North Pacific out of Hawaii north and then through the Aleutian Islands (Adak) to the Bering Sea and four months there and then back through the Aleutians to San Francisco and the Oakland Army Pier. That was funny. I was on a naval ship and being in the Air Force, putting into port at an army depot. The Atlantic is not too bad in the summer months as long as a typhoon is not blowing up. The Bering Sea was tame for some strange reason when we were there. The ship was 432 feet long and cut through the waves quite well.
