    Living with son and daughter-in-law, Frank and Carolyn. The census data for 1865 indicate the father of James 1798 was born in England, his mother in NJ.

    James indicates his place of birth as Albany County, corroborated by his death certificate; his brother, John, says he was born in Schoharie County; his brother, Benjamin, says he was born in Schoharie County and brother, William, says he was born in Schenectady County - all in the 1865 census. All three counties adjoin one another. The place of birth is important when attempting to place the ancestors of Jackson, born in 1775.
