Looking for info on James Atherton. He was born in 1843. He was my great great grandfather. Parents possibly Caleb and Nancy Atherton of Franklin Co., PA. There is a 7 yr. old James listed as their son on the 1880 Census of Franklin Co., PA. My problem is that James listed PA as his birthplace on the 1880 and 1900 census. However on his Civil War discharge papers, he listed Guernsey Co., Ohio as his birthplace. I have no idea the reason for the discrepancy. He mustered out of the Union Army in San Antonio, Texas and met and married Lisette Petmecky. They ended up in Dallas, Dallas Co. TX where they were living when they died. They are both buried in Dallas. I would appreciate any help.
