At a brick wall.Somebody has to have some info!!!! This man was born around 1838 but he shaves 10 years off every now and then! He was born in KY and lists his father from VA.He died in 1880 in St. Louis, MO listed as F S McComes.A former Methodist he was baptised Catholic at Rich Hill (1879), MO and listed his name as Frances. In 1880 Osage Co. Mo Census he is James McComes. At his marriage to Elizabeth Cassel Wilson (prev. married to Thomas Wilson) he is listed as Amurel McComas. This was in Coles Co. IL 1866.On his son's death certificate he is listed as father Armond McComas.There is an Armond S. and a James S. McComas in the 130th Reg IL Infantry Co G during Civil War. Knowing him it could be the same guy. He got out on a disability. This guy is as slippery as an eel!! Am desperately searching for his ancestry. But WHO is he really???
