This I already have - though he (James) was actually born in 1872. What I am actually looking for are the histories of his parents Paterick McGrath and Betsy Quigley.
According to an 1871 census the family was living in St Anne Limehouse, London, England. At the time they had three children: Thomas, John and Norah and so from the time of the 1871 census to when James was born a year later they moved to Sherman Maine. That's all I have - I have no idea when Jame's parents passed, their actual DOB's or the name of his grandparents.
If you run into any of this information it would be appreciated if you would pass it along.
