Dear Valerie:

Just by chance I spotted the name James Isherwood in your posting. My great grandfather's name was James Isherwood and he married Mary Harriet Hughes and they emigrated with children, including my grandfather, Arthur Isherwood around 1892. Your James is of an earlier date but I was wondering if it was my James father. Do you know anything else about the James Isherwood you mentioned. The name is not all that common and I do not seem to find the birhdate or parents names of my great grandfather.

I do know that when they emigrated my grandfather was 12 years old and they came from Manchester/Bolton area of England. My grandfather, Arthur Isherwood was born in 1880.

If you are aware of any connection please advise. Thanks for your posting.

George Barrington
