Re: BATHAM from England > Kansas U.S.A.
Many thanks for posting this. It fills in some details of the Batham family that I was not aware of. James Batham was bapt. 12 Feb 1809 in Brierley Hill, Staffs. and is thus related to all other Bathams in the area. He married Mary Meacham on 7 Dec 1830 at Aston, Birmingham, Warks. Her birthplace appears to be misspelled - this is surely Hartlebury, Worcs.
If any descendants or other relatives find this please get in touch.
