While still in England, Jane Atherton married James Winterbottom (born 1818). Their first child was a son, Job Winterbottom, also born in England. By 1846, James & Jane Winterbottom had emigrated to the United States, where they settled in Cohoes, Albany Co, NY - a cotton mill district, much like the area where they had lived in England. Two more children were born in Cohoes - a son James Winterbottom, and daughter, Mary Winterbottom. After the death of James Winterbottom ca 1876, Jane and her two youngest children (James & Mary) moved from NY to Pickens Co, GA, where they lived with Jane's brother, Thomas Atherton.
The 1860 census of Pickens Co, GA for William C. Atherton (age 39) includes a Mary Atherton, age 70, born in England. This is believed to be the mother of the four Atherton siblings; the name of their father is not known.
The three Atherton brothers (James, Thomas, William Charles) were well-known in north Georgia. Having moved several years earlier from the New York area to GA, they had established cotton mills in Roswell and in Talking Rock.
