In 1804, they were granted a parcel of land in St. Andre d'Argenteuil, Quebec, Canada by General James Patrick Murray. The only census record for this ancestor is from 1825. His recorded age is 40 but not yet 60, very vague! The birth year of Jacques James is somewhere between 1766 and 1785.
The sons of Jacques James and Marie are Joseph, Jean Baptiste, Francois, and Benjamin. Two daughters were also born to these ancestors, Marguerite and Louise. Marie Trottier is often referred to as "Femme du negre" or "wife of the negro". Later census records describe the sons of Jacques "James" and Marie as coloured or mulatto.
