Mary - In reviewing my records, I noticed I found the following 1850 census information.If this is your James W. Hunley, he was 4 in 1850, or born in 1846. James W. Hunley - s. of Thomas Hunley. p. 071, Madison co. Shows mother and 2 siblings. I think Thomas was a brother to John.Another possible brother, also in 1850 censues was Wyatte. Does this fit?
