James Fales (the aged) died in 1708 in Dedham, Massachusetts. This is the record for James, husband of Anne (Brock) Fales, not James, husband of Anne (Wolnough) Fales. The father did not immigrate to America, only James Fales, husband of Anne Brock. Added note: The James Fales, husband of Anne Wolnough is not confirmed anywhere that I have seen as the father of James Fales, husband of Anne Brock.

Hi Bob,

I edited Anna Maria Kamp. Had a little trouble following your merge, and believe they are the same person, but there were errors in the merge. No reason to believe she died in Baden, Also not sure why her parents were dropped. Her father is Johann George Kamp & Mother Anna Maria Brunn shown in the birth . baptsim record sourced.

Hi Bob,

I added proper sourcing info per your suggestion on Martha Cowell's page from my researching and removed comments in source stating you and Amy with "firsthand knowledge". I hope that was OK, as you both obviously were not around in 1600s.
