Son of James Treglown and Elizabeth Moore.

The following biography was added at the request of member rkajma, member # 47830590:

James Alfred Treglown, eldest child of James and Ellen Jane Treglown (nee Moore), Florence's eldest brother, is called James after his father, grandfather and great great grandfather. His great grandfather is called John.
Birth registered Redruth January to March 1874. Momon records give the date as 23rd February, but the 1900 US census as 18th February. The records of Treleigh church show that he is baptized 11th July 1875, together with his cousin Mary Curnow whose mother Mary Jane is the sister of James Alfred's father, James.
1881 UK census shows him living, a schoolboy aged 7, with his parents in The Old Work House, Treleigh. His father a house painter.
1891 census shows him still living with his parents in North Country, the hamlet where The Old Work House, Treleigh, is situated. Aged 17, he is a minor in employment. It is possible that he works in the mine nearest ti his home, Wheal Motague, where previous generation of Treglowns have worked. His father , a greengrocer, is neither employer nor employed.
1895 April 17th he arrives New York on the "Majestic" out of Liverpool, aged 22, a miner, bound for Colorado (Denver?), a transient with 3 pieces of baggage.
A James Treglown appears in The California Directory 1895, working as a minor in Nevada County. Could this be him.
1898 18th June aged 25, he lands back in Liverpool on the "Umbria", travelling forward steerage.
1898 28th November he marries Margaret Ann Kevern at St Stephen's, Treleigh. The marriage is registered Redruth December 1898. The marriage record shows that he is a bachelor, aged 24, a miner, the son of James Treglown, a greengrocer: the bride, a spinster, aged 26, the daughter of John Kevern, a farmer. As customary, no occupation is given for the female. (The bride, in reality, is 28, not 26, having been born in 1870). Witnesses to the marraige are James Treglown and Laura Treglow, presumably the grrom's father and sister. Interesting that Margaret's father does not appear as a witness: both parents are alive in 1898. Do they even attend the wedding? Do they disapprove? Laura, although younger than James" sister Lizzie, is the second witness, as Lizzie is away working as dressmaker in Davonport and tus perhaps cannot attend the wedding.
At some point after the marraige in November 1898 and before June 1900, James Alfred returns to the USA, leaving Margaret Ann in Redruth. To date the record of his journey lies undiscovered.
James Alfred Treglown's next appearence is on 30th June 1900 in the US census: he is in Colorado, Precinct 6, Hinsdale County which is in the south west of the state, near Lake City, Silverton and the Rio Grande National Forest. He works for The Golden Fleece Mining and Milling Company as a gold/silver miner, not employed now for 6 months. He is a partner in the household, which looks like a group of lone males (miners), living together. He is a white male, DOB February 18th 1874 and married for 2 years. 1894 is given as the year of his immigration to the USA. He answers, "6 years", to the question, "How long have you been in the USA?" To the question about application for naturalization, PA seem to be the answer.(pending Application?). US records state Margaret Treglown (nee Kevern) arrives there in 1902, although we have no details of her journey. June 25th 1909 James Alfred Treglown dies in Salt Lake City, Utah aged 35, survived by his wife and 2 sons in the USA, and his parents and 6 of his 7 siblings in the UK. He is buried, according to Mormon records, in Mt. Olivet Cemetary, Salt Lake City.
