James, ref: your 270 post. Here is a little something to ponder----The New Encyclopedia Britannica, 15th edtion 1974 - 2003. Talking about the old Ohio company trading post that later became Fort Cumberland, built in 1754 by the British Colonel James IMES not INNES. Growning up we had the earlier Encyclopedia Britannica collection in our home, this is back in the early 1950's. This early edition also had Colonel James IMES as the engineer builder of Fort Cumberland. Colonel Imes, was dispatched to the present day Cumberland to construct a Fortress of sorts in preparation of General Edward Bradddocks arrival from Fort Frederick, with his command of British soldiers. Fort Cumberland was commanded by then Lt. George Washington. Gen. Braddock, used Fort Cumberland in his ill-fated attack on Fort Duquesne doing the French and Indian War. So here again we have the name Imes or Innes or all the other many spellings of Iiams, Ijams to sort through. Contact me at my personal e-mail I have something more on our William b. 1755 and his wife I would like to pass by you.
