-931. James 6 (James 5, Silvester 4, Ebenezer 3, John 2, John 1) , married in Canada.  Nothing has been heard of him since the War of 1812, and nothing is known of his decendants. [His mother was Desire Gorham]

From this family tree:

From GenForum:

Actually there is no proof that this James lived in Canada other than the fact Joshua Bailey Richmond's book

There is also other documentation in a book titled "The History of Deerfield" that mentions this family... .

My Mayflower descendants go through the Gorham's back to John Gorham. John married Desire Howland, daughter of John Howland.
