Henry James was born ca 1815 in PA and resided in Kirkwood Twp Belmont Co. prior to 1850. He and wife Ellen McFadden were in the 1850 and 1860 cenus. Family eventually moved first to Ill and then to Liberty, Republic Co., KS. Children (all probably born OH - Belmont Co. ?): Will (1837), Joseph (1840), Martha (1846) Thomas (1848), Wilson (1849), Alex (1851), Robert C (1853), Charles W. (1854), Ella (1854), Lola B. (1859), and Rosa (1861), Mary Elizabeth (1845). My great-great grandmother Mary Elizabeth James, daughter of Henry and Ellen,was born 23 Apr 1845 in Belmont Co. Married Charles A Thompson, also a Belmont Co. native and son of Samuel and Jane Adkins Thompson originally of VA. LOOKING FOR: 1. Ellen McFadden's family. In census she lists father as being from MD, mother OH. 2. Henry James parents - assuming they came to Belmont Co. 3. Spouses of any other James children. Thank you.
