I am the grandson of Emma Missouri Aliff who is a full sibling of James. I too would like to know Julia Aliffs actions after husband John apparently died in 1878. Emma had 4 daughters and 2 sons, all of whom have passed away. There are branches of the family in Charleston and my own branch which is now in Texas. I have 3 or 4 pictures of my grandmother with 2 or 3 of her brothers or half brothers and would share them if anyone is interested.
