My info comes from a source in San Diego from 1993. She lists James as a possible brother of Henry Jr. He is listed as a laborer in Potter Twp., Centre Co. in 1824 with a son Josiah age 7. I have not been able to verify this. Her opinion is that James was the father of Henry III which would make him my ggg grandfather. Again, have no verification.
She lists Chloe as a fourth child of Henry Sr., born in 1771 in Delaware, married to Job Colbert or Calvert in the early 1800's in Crawford Co., PA. The union resulted in two children; Isaac and Robert. May have been of Plainfield, IL. email me with your address and I'll mail you copies of what I have from her and if you want I have her phone number and address somewhere. The Reverend Jonathan is listed as Henry Sr's fifth or 6th child. Rev. Jonathan married Elizabeth Wilkens and they had eleven children, of which two daughters (Mary and Rebecca) married Alcorn brothers Robert and William.
