James Singleton, my husband's 2d g-granduncle, was the 5th of 7 known children born to Willis Singleton (1772-?) and MAry Ferguson (1800-?) in 1836 in Illinois. He is my husband's 2d g-grand uncle, because he is the brother to my husband's 2d g-grandfather, Newton S. Singleton (1826-1900).
On June 23, 1859, James married Chloe (Cloy)Ridgeway (1824-1890) in Jefferson County, Illinois. It is unknown whether James and Chloe had any children.
On the June 1, 1880 census in Shiloh, Jefferson County, Illinois, James Singleton, 50, born in Illinois, living with wife "Cloy" Singleton, 56, his step-daughter, Lucinda Cash, 36, Ruben Ridgeway, 23, "boarder", and Nancy Pentecost, 53, his sister-in-law.
James died at the age of 74 in Jefferson County, Illinois.
We would love to communicate with any descendants of this family.
