James Pryor emigrated to America in 1842 with his wife Mary, son James Thomas Jnr and daughter Mary. Two more children were born in Mineral Point: Joseph and Walter. James Snr was a tailor and a JP in Mineral Point. He later moved to Dodgeville and may have been a Methodist Minister until his death in 1883. James Pryor Jnr married a Mary Harris. His sister Mary Ann married a William Williams. Does this ring bells with anyone in Wisconsin?
