I think we might be researching the same JAMES family - though you never know with these common names! My interest is in Civil war vet John JAMES, b. December 16, 1843 in Crawford, Wyandot Co., Ohio, d. January 21, 1898 in Pulaski Co., Indiana. The connection is that his probable mother Elizabeth JAMES might be one of your two Elizabeth JAMESs you mention in your post. "My" Elizabeth JAMES also consented to the underage (age 17) marriage of her daughter Martha JAMES to John LANG in Carey, Wyandot, Ohio in 1849. Does any of this sound familiar? If so please contact me!
