Narrative

According to PEI Baptismal Index, James Henry was born on 18 March 1848 in Charlottetown. He emigrated to the United States in 1870 and married Annie McLean on June 26 1879. They had five daughters: Annie Alma (1880), Catherine (Kattie) Eva (1881), and Sarah Jane (1883) , all born in Massachusetts; and Mabel (1885) and Florence (1888), born in Connecticut. Mabel died young.

In the 1880 US census, James and Annie were living in Boston with their daughter Annie who was born that year. James Brace worked as a carpenter and Annie as a janitoress. From birth and census records, they moved to Connecticut and then were living in New York from around 1900.

In the 1900 census, daughters Kattie (19), Sarah (17) and Florence (12) were at home.

Catherine Eva married Robert MacNair in 1902 in the Bronx, New York. At the time of the 1905 New York Census only Florence was at home, working as a saleslady. The couple was in New York for the 1910 census, with their widowed daughter Alma Smith, age 29. James was living with his widowed daughter, A. Alma Smith, in New York in 1930, but was not listed in his brother John Albert's obituary in 1938.
