Would like to know if anyone has any info on James Kelso, born about 1830 in Ohio to Joseph Kelso and Rebecca Payne. Joseph is a brother of Nathan Ora Kelso. Census data indicates that James married a Julian/Julia Ann about 1855 in Scott Co., Iowa. They had at least two children; Sarah and John. I'm trying to definitively tie John to a John Postum Kelso who died in 1948 in Snohomish Co., Washington. James and Julian had a John Posten/Poston living with them in the 1856 census and I am theorizing that Postum may be a corruption of Poston, and that Julia Ann Poston, daughter of William Wesley Poston, may be James Kelso's wife. Census sheets later hint that there may have been another child born in 1862, William, but by 1870 Julia Ann cannot be found, although a James Kelso is found with an 8 year-old William in Illinois Grove, Liberty, Marshall, Iowa. Does anyone recognize this line of the Kelso clan. My wife is great granddaughter of John P. Kelso.
