James was baptized in 1851 . He and his wife, having a great desire to join the saints in America but not the means, prayed for a way to open up. Finally his sister and her husband, who were well off, offered to pay their way. So they came together. A little girl was born to them in Keokuk, Iowa . Sometime after their arrival in the Valley, they went to live in Kaysville, Utah . They went south with the other saints and stopped in Nephi where they built a home. James , being a stone mason, helped build the wall around the settlement. Children: Ellen , b. 2 Dec 1842 , Lancs England . George Adam , b. 28 Oct 1844 , Lancs, England .
