I'm afraid I have different information on James McElhiney. I do show that he was born 01 Nov 1823, and from what I can find, in Somerset, PA, but I know for certain that his death date was 16 Jul 1881 because I have visited his grave. He died in Eppards Point, a township in Livingston County, IL which no longer exists and is buried in Payne Cemetery. James married Avis West Bowen on 05 Jul 1848 in Green Co., WI.

James and Avis had 4 children...William Bowen, Elsie Ann, Charles F and Helen Elizabeth. Having visited both the Livingston County and Green County courthouses, I can vouch that these facts, at least, are accurate. It is possible that my James McElhiney is a different person, but it seems odd that there would be two men with the same name born on the same day.
