I am looking for information about the parents or siblings of James McCrea who was born Oct 26, 1811 in New Jersey. He married Elsa Martenis in Warren County, New Jersey in 1840 & they had 5 children. Sarah b. 1841, Esther Ann b. 1842, William b July 1, 1846-d.Aug 13, 1848, and John b. 1851. His wife Elsie died June 10, 1866 and is buried in the Rockport Presbyterian Cemetery in Mansfield, Warren County, New Jersey. James remarried to Ann Elizabeth Bryan Perry on March 7, 1867 and my Great Grand Father, Ulysses G. McCrea was born to them on July 15, 1868 in New Jersey. They moved to Kansas and I found them there in the 1880 census.
The family bible starts with James and I would like to know if anyone knows where he came from. Census records indicate he was also born in New Jersey.
