Re: Need lookup for John C. James
Hi Diane. I did some research on William M. James. I think he was born 1818-20 in PA. And in 1883 he died in Wapello, Louisa, IA. I am still not positive this is John's father. I've found nothing that indicates this. Could be an uncle for all I know. As for Anna, I've found an Anna Eberhard from PA who married a John Hayward 5 August 1823, Philadelphia. This could explain William's step daughter Elizabeth Hayward. Also, I believe John was in the army, enlisting 1 March 1865, Harrisburg, PA. The sign up card says his residence was in Brady, PA. All the other info seems to match his so I assume it is him.
Any research suggestions? I've really hit the brick wall here.
