Re: James Lackey (b. 1798)
Perhaps you could help me. I am trying to get information on James Lackey born in 1820. All I have is that in 1870 US Census he was living in Atchison, Kansas. He was a drayman (He had a good team and flat wagon and delivered things like lumber to new home locations.) My great grandfather Charles Lewis and his family lived with him and I am trying to find if he was a relative. Charlie painted houses and could have gotten his jobs from Jim who was delivering lumber to those same people. Jim had $5000 worth of real estate in Atchison at the time.
