I really think your James is a cousin of my Samaria, and the nephew of Samaria's father, John Bartley. I wish I knew more about who his father (John's brother) is, as I think then I'd have a better chance of figuring out who their mutual father and mother are.
From what I've figured out (based on information from Joy Morzos), your James was born on July 29, 1840 and died Aug. 31, 1916. He married Eliza Jane Aleshire on June 16, 1861 in Meigs Co., Ohio. He is buried in Cabell Co., WV, and according to census records Joy found, he was born in IL. You probably have all that. However, if John is James' uncle, it appears that the family also lived in Pennsylvania for a time as John was born there in abt. 1815 (according to the 1850 and 1860 Censuses).
