Watertown,Jefferson Co.,NY.He married Jane Wateman according to MO death certificate for son James "Ten Eyek" of Osceola,
St.Clair,MO. I remembered seeing a James,born IL, marry Sarah B.Pickett but could not fit him in anywhere.The death certificate (d.4-10-1922)says he was widowed Sarah B.Ten Eyek. M.Belty told me that a relative of hers,Cora "Katie"
