James may have been the first son of James (1814 - December 25, 1887; born in Cty. Limerick) M/T Rachael Spearin (nee Doherty, 1821 - November 14, 1903 and later married to George Bremner (1862 - 1947). One of the sons of Jamesand Rachael was George Edward (May 31, 1858 - October 19, 1914) whgo was M/T Elizabeth Marriott (1862 - 1938). The Parish records of Rathkeale, Cty. Limerick, Ireland will hopefully provide more answers once I receive them.
