|Note: James' wife Jemima is listed as the mother of 7
children three of which are living. This means that the two
Fea children found on that death index most likely belonged to James and
Jemima. The census record lists James as a bookkeeper, that
he immigrated to the U.S. in 1881 and is an alien. Jemima is listed
as born in Scotland as are her parents, immigrated in 1880 but it doesn't
say if she's naturalized or an alien that they are renting their home.
Their daughters Mary and Alice are listed as being in school.
All can read, write and speak English.
