Re: Pherigo,Stanley,Weise 1840-1910 Cass Co.
This is the only bit of information I could find on James as of yet...
Source: page 51 of Cass county IL marriages 1837-1879
James W. Pherigo married Elizabeth Jane Standley (this is how was in book of surname) February 18, 1879.Performed by D. Strain.
D. Strain= D. J. Strain associated with the Presbyterian Church in the Beardstown locality. (this info from clergy index of same book).
James and family did not appear in the 1880 cass county census, will look on microfilm for 1870 census.Hope this helps some.
May God Bless You and Yours,
Have a good evening,
