It appears James is a notable see his Wikipedia . We need help sourcing and connecting him to the Wikitree family. An amazing man and historic Connecticut family. Need children list; adding more about his son in law who appears to be Dr. Charles Beach who married his daughter Mary Elizabeth. 

Thank you

Here maybe some history that may help but no mention of Travellers Ins.  https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/13832811/james-goodwin-batterson

He learned about travellers insurance when travelling in England where it was included on his train ticket, then he brought the idea back to the US.  

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Travelers_Companies

There is lots of information on him by putting his name into your search engine.  

Thank you for your questions and good luck in your venture.
