William JAMES of Monmouthshire, Wales & Schuylkill Co., PA
Mary Ann HARRIES, daughter of Jacob, married William JAMES, son of John, on 2 APR 1842 in Bedwelty, Monmouthshire Wales. William & Marry Ann had children born in Charles Town & Blackwood:John 1843; Maria 1845 married GREENWAY then BUBB; Mary Ann 1846 married Rbt.GREGORY of Melksham, Wiltshire; William 1849 married Mary ACKLEY; Mary Ruth 1852 married a MORGAN; ?Eliz/Hanna/Esther? 1853 married Jabez LYONS; Adelaide 1857; Moses 1862 married Eliz SMITH. All (perhaps not John) immigrated 1870/71 to Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, USA.
Mary Ann HARRIES JAMES lists her birthplace on the census as Midsommer Norton, Somerset, England. Her husband William JAMES lists his birthplace on the census as Newton, Monmouthshire, Wales. Both were born between 1815-1819. William lists his birthdate as 4 JUNE 1819, but I suspect it is 1815 from other records, with Mary Ann's being 1816.
William James married widow Bridget THOMAS (DEC 1886) after Mary Ann's death.
