My mother was a Cales. David Cail/Kail/Kahle/Cale usually had his named spelled with out the "s" on the end.John, one of his sons, had the "s" added to his name.One or two of John's sons/grandsons took the "s" off in later years. There are many James Cales. 1) James b 1791 s/o John & Isabella, mar Sarah Dick. Sometimes called James Sr. 2) James b 1815 s/o Mary & grson/o John & Iasbella, marr Sarah Meadows, d/o Phillip.This is my line. 3) James b 1818 s/o John Burnside & grson/o John & Isabella 4) James b 1822 s/o William & grson/o David. 5) James b 1833 s/o James b 1791, married Nancy Steel. Sometimes called James Jr. 6) James J. b 1849 s/o Arch & grson/o James b 1791, mar Sarah Meadows d/o Anthony. There are more James', but I think you get the picture now.
