The theory on the table was to see if this James married to Christian OUTERSON in Eckford, 1820, was also the James, widower of Margaret MABON?

If this theory was true, a descendant of James & Margaret (MABON) R. should be an excellent match to John (RC-2), descendant of James' son Adam, and also a match, but more distant, to Ralph, a descendant of William of Pringlestead (John and Ralph being distant matches at 37 markers).

Results now in, Jan 2013, show that yes there is a relationship, but it looks unlikely that John (RC-2) and RC-3 share the same James.
