I am not related, just trying to help.
I found a couple of things on James. I saw that this man was connected to a family tree on Ancestry, listed as James Van Trady, and his birthdate matches
JAMES TRADY was born 11 March 1905, got Social Security number 325-10-7076 (indicating Illinois,) and died January 1972.
