James? (was in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1900 census.Father of ten children by his second wife, Isabelle Martin. She died in 1942, buried in Ottumwa, Iowa. However, would like to know what happened to the first wife Margaret Chapman and their two children. I assume she died in the early 1870's as he remarries in March, 1875, Warren Co., Iowa. In the 1870 census for Newton Co.,IN both James and Isaac have farms near Abel and Eliza's. James and Isaac each married one of Eliza's daughters. Did both of the boys lose their family in an epidemic? Perhaps the girls are buried in the Pleasant Grove Cemetery next to Abel and their mother Eliza.The family plot has room for about ten graves, but if they are buried there, it's without headstones. When did James die and where?)
