Thanks for taking the time to reply. I don't see a connection unless your James was a son of my James and brother to my grandfather John. I think the family stayed in Indiana except John moved to Carthage, Missouri around 1900. James was born in Ireland in 1828. The family is listed in the 1880 census in Indiana: Wife Nancy Ellen Wood born 1845, Dau.Kathryn born 1875, John born 1877. I know there was also a sister named Mary who lived and died in Indiana, she was married to Patrick Dugan. I don't know if there were other siblings. Happy hunting for your James.
