From Chuck Ducan According to my Mother's research the James Newell you are looking for may be the 3rd child of James Newell and Mary Taylor. Her records show that the younger James Newell married a Elisa or Alice Page on 20 Oct. 1810 (you said 1820, I don't know who is right) in Monmouth Co. NJ. The elder James Newell was born in 1756 in County Down, Ireland and was married in 1778 in Toms Run, NJ and died on 14 Feb. 1840 in Toms Run. His other two children were Mary Elizabeth born 28 Sept. 1779 and Annie born probably in the early 1780's. James (Senior) had two children by a second wife Amy. They were Elias Anderson Newell b. 11 Sept. 1829 and William I. Newell b. 2 Oct. 1834. Hope this helps. If you need additional info., I can see what else my Mother knows. Our connection is that my Father's Mother (Elmira) was a Newell from N.J.
