Hi Shirley: Thanks very much for your info. Elizabeth Earls, James' mother, is my gr-gr-grandmother. She was married (1) to John Earls who d. 1835, Decatur Co., IN and I show their 3 chldren as Anna, John, & James. However, my family oral history says that they had 8 or 9 children. Elizabeth married (2) David Wilson in Decatur Co., IN (my line) and they had 3 children: George W., William, and Hester (Hettie). I do not have a birth name for Elizabeth Earls so if you do, please inform me. Thanks again.
