Hi Bill, It would seem that some how we should have some connection. My James Ezra was in Holmes co, Oh at the time of his sisters wedding. I read in a book at the local library that Matilda married John Lint on 3-21-1833. And that he gave her away. So either her father could not be there or did not approve. It also said that James died in Salt lake City, UT. Now either the info on his place of death is wrong or there was a son that died there later and they mixed them up. My Lint source had John Mcquiston and Nancy Bowers as his parents. But I found this tree and of all there children, James and Matilda were not of them. So I figure that somehow my James and yours are related. I will go to the library next week and find that book. Maybe between the two of us we can figure this out. After all there name couldn't have been that common. Thanks, Sherry Hofbauer.
