    On looking at the image James William's place of birth could be Wales, Europe. It has not been fully transcribed.

    Elisah on image looks to be 14 not 41

    On checking the image of the 1870 census, the place of birth for James Williams could be Wales, Europe. It has not been fully transcribed.

    Elisah aged 41 looks like 14.

    Hope you will feel a little better soon Elaine.

    Wales m a mystery and Penn marriage probably too early for the usual sites.

    Take it easy

    https://www.ancestry.com/interactive...&usePUBJs=true

    Ancestry transcribed the surname as Riehl, and he's from "Whaeel Emope"

    So, I don't think we doubt that the James Williams found in the 1870 census is your man, and it definitely says he's from Wales.
    Are you really seeking to connect him to a birth in Wales? And his parents?
    Couple of questions - you say he's an officer - how do you know?
    On his memorial page, you list parents for him - what were the clues to your guess?

    and welcome to FTF!
