James McCray was of Irish descent.

The 1850 German Township, Allen County, Ohio, Census listed a Real Estate value of $2,000. James was a farmer. In 1850 he also had R. McCray living with him who was 86 years old (born about 1764).

The McCray home is still standing and in excellent repair. It is located at 2885 N Cole St., Lima, Ohio 45801.

bullet  Noted events in his life were:



1. Residence: Lima, Ohio. This is a picture of the McCray homestead in Lima, Ohio. This was the family home built around 1859. It is located in German (now American) Township, Allen County, Ohio. Nancy Ward McCray and James McCray inherited the southeast quarter of Section 14 (160 acres) from William Ward. According to an 1880 plat map, the land had been sold and there was a home on the northeast corner of that quarter. Satellite photos show that a subdivision now sits on that quarter, but the house is still there. A visit to the site revealed that it is in very good repair. The northeast corner of the quarter is at the intersection of North Cole Street and Diller Road. This area is close to, and just northwest of Lima, Ohio.
