I am interested in learning about ancestors of James Marks, born somewhere in Virginia in 1826.He possibly lived in Shelby Co. Ohio, and definitely lived in Greene Co. Indiana, Mercer Co. Missouri, and Cedar Co. Iowa.He move around with a Daniel Marks (brother or uncle? b:1813) and his wife's (Susan J. b:1830) family the Templetons of Ohio. They had 5 children - Elias A., Sarah C., John C., AK, Mary (Mollie) E.
Daniel Marks married a Jane (maiden name unknown) b:1812 in PA.Had 12 children, Lena Ann, Polly, Phebe, Bianca, Rosetta, Samantha, John T., William, John N., Sarah, Margaret, Francis, and James D.
He may have also had a brother or nephew named Jesse Marks, born about 1830 in Ohio (unconfirmed). He married a Poly Ann Dobbins B: 1831 in Indiana.He lived near James & Daniel in Indiana, so it is not clear if the link is a direct one or not and did not look to go to Missouri or Iowa with them.
Any information on James or Daniel would be greatly appreciated as the trail goes darkbefore 1813.Particularly interested in their birth in Virginia and father's first name.
