James King, born in North Carolina bet 1793-1796, died Missouri abt 1871 married 4 Dec 1855 Mary E. Edwards (or Edwars or similar, marriage certificate is ambiguous in spelling) in John D. Heath's Home, Lebanon, Cooper Co., MO.  He had married previously, before 1835, an unknown spouse and fathered Daniel R. King 1835-1884 and Francis Marion King 1840-1864-65 who is reputed to have died in the Civil War and was married to Elizabeth Hall in 1862, fathering Robert Frank King 1863-1939 and Charles Alex King 1864-1907.  Cannot find any other info on James King other than shown in 9-26-1850 Census single, 54,  living with Daniel King 15 and Marian King 11    District 23, Cooper Co., MO and shown in  8-11-1860 census married, 67, living with M. E. King age 40 and F. M. King age 19   Pilot Grove, Cooper Co., MO.  ANY information would help a I can't get back any further without more info.

Thank you, yes that is the certificate from which I pulled my known information.  Appreciate your answer.  What I am looking for is James parents names.  I have a feeling he may have been a first generation immigrant.

Welcome, Nici!  I'm not finding anything you didn't describe above.  How do you know James died about 1871?

I found some info about Francis and Elizabeth.  It looks like she was previously married to a Nelson and had some children.  I can't tell whether you already have this info, because none of the people mentioned have profiles.  Profiles are the best place to lay out all your info and sources, to provide context for the family.  Building the profiles with what you know is the best way to help us help you find more.

Thank you.  Yes, I have all subsequent information on the entire family.  Unfortunately, it is James parents which stop me. from going anywhere else.  My tree is much too large to post in the required format, unfortunately, as it includes all sides from all four sets of grandparents, plus many living people.  1871 date is because of census data for Elizabeth and her subsequent marriage/children birth dates
You're welcome.

I feel obliged to point out that WikiTree is very much a give-and-take proposition.  Members build our shared tree by adding our information and sources to it, and receive each other's help and support in return.  All of us have experienced the struggle of contributing our info one profile at a time or through the GEDCOM import process, often from very large trees.

Best of luck to you.
