Pam, Thanks for your response. It is a distinct possibility James had a brother John. At present I have been told James parents were Samual and Elizabeth and he had a sister Elizabeth born 1839 and another Susan born 1850.
Can you give me an approximate date for the death of your John and also for his wife, Ann. Any other information would help.
I am doing some more research into these things and will most certainly keep you posted. Regards, Russell (Sydney)
