In Reply to: William G. Sexsmith m. Mary Anderson by Carol Colvin of 245

I am having a problem with James that married Anne McCormick on 4 Jan 1856. Was this the son of George I, brother to William George/Mary Anderson; George/Mary Kennedy;and Matthew?
Their children were:
Catherine b. 26 Oct 1856 m. John McFarlan 4 Feb 1880
James b. 9 Sept 1859
Robert Andrew b. 30 July 1860
William Henry b. 20 Apr 1862

In the 1881 Census, James b abt 1816 was 65 married to a Mary A. (Driver) Their children were:
James b 1860;
Robert b 1861:
William H. b 1862 (Children of Anne McCormick)
Harriet b 1867
Hester S b. 1869
Latista b. 1871
Mary b 1874
Edward b 1878
Maggie b 1880 (Children of James & Mary Ann Driver)
I had shown that William H. was the first child of James and Mary Ann Driver, but now think that William H was the child of James and Anne McCormick.

I have a James about the same age having a marriage with a Miss Anderson, prior to his marriage to Anne McCormick. I have no information on this marriage other than a note that
"Miss Anderson m. James b. 13 May 1813".
They had:John b 16 Dec 1839;
Jane 1843

Now, one more James comes into play.
James (Joseph) & Letitia. Thier children were:
John b 16 Dec 1839
Thomnas b. 1843
George b. 25 Apr 1845
Letitia b 1848

The mother Letitia died in 1848, so she could have been the Miss Anderson. The children are not all the same, but I have the same birthdate for John b 16 Dec 1839.

It is possible that it is the same James:
First married to Letitia Anderson, then to Anne McCormick, and lastly to Mary Ann Driver.

The JOHN born 16 Dec 1839 is the one that is married to Ellen Jordan 25 Feb 1867. We are trying to find out What JAMES is the father this JOHN.

This is really a "REACH" but a possibility.

Do you know who Matthew, son of George I, and brother to James, William George, and George II married?

If there is anyone else that has connetions to any of these families, I would really like to hear what your thoughts are.
