I don't know if you got your answers since 2009, but I have a James Napier in my family tree. He was born abt 1833 in KY. His father was Edward G Napier, born in KY. His mother was Susan Helton born in KY. His wife Sydney or Lucindy Burkhart was born 1835 in KY. They were married in 1864 when he was 31. In the 1870 census they list George, Ezekiel and James as children. In the 1880 census they list Polly, John D, Catherine, Jacob, and Susan as children. He died in 1907. My great-aunt Sabina Thompson married his son, Jacob Napier.
