I am having a problem with James that married Anne McCormick on 4 Jan 1856.Was this the son of George I, brother to William George/Mary Anderson; George/Mary Kennedy;and Matthew? Their children were: Catherine b. 26 Oct 1856 m. John McFarlan 4 Feb 1880 James b. 9 Sept 1859 Robert Andrew b. 30 July 1860 William Henry b. 20 Apr 1862
In the 1881 Census, James b abt 1816 was 65 married to a Mary A. (Driver) Their children were: James b 1860; Robert b 1861: William H. b 1862 (Children of Anne McCormick) Harriet b 1867 Hester S b. 1869 Latista b. 1871 Mary b 1874 Edward b 1878 Maggie b 1880 (Children of James & Mary Ann Driver) I had shown that William H. was the first child of James and Mary Ann Driver, but now think that William H was the child of James and Anne McCormick.
I have a James about the same age having a marriage with a Miss Anderson, prior to his marriage to Anne McCormick.I have no information on this marriage other than a note that "Miss Anderson m. James b. 13 May 1813". They had:John b 16 Dec 1839; Jane 1843 James.
Now, one more James comes into play. James (Joseph) & Letitia. Thier children were: John b 16 Dec 1839 Thomnas b. 1843 George b. 25 Apr 1845 Letitia b 1848
The mother Letitia died in 1848, so she could have been the Miss Anderson.The children are not all the same, but I have the same birthdate for John b 16 Dec 1839.
It is possible that it is the same James: First married to Letitia Anderson, then to Anne McCormick, and lastly to Mary Ann Driver.
The JOHN born 16 Dec 1839 is the one that is married to Ellen Jordan 25 Feb 1867.We are trying to find out What JAMES is the father this JOHN.
This is really a "REACH" but a possibility.
Do you know who Matthew, son of George I, and brother to James, William George, and George II married?
If there is anyone else that has connetions to any of these families, I would really like to hear what your thoughts are.
