      I had my suspicions for some time that this was the correct James Whitton for this family but the USA records say he was born in Scotland. However the birth dates are exactly correct. It would appear that James was born when his parents were in Canda but left Scotland for the USA in 1890, some of his half siblings also went overseas.

      married in 1899 at Cook County, Illinois.
