    1. [S1251] Find A Grave, James Storm.
      James Storm [1786-1863], son of John Storm [1761-1835], Revolutionary Soldier, appears to have been the eldest of the family. There remains to be more research done concerning James Storm in his early years. It is possible that he sojourned in Indiana shortly, but records place him in Kentucky for the majority of his adult years. There he was a pioneer preacher of the Christian faith preaching in the mountains of Knox, Whitley and Laurel Counties. He is on record as the officiating preacher of many marriages of those counties.

      It appears from the will of son, Jacob Storm, in Kentucky, and from the obituary of grandson, Henderson Storm, that James and Sarah Storm perhaps did not come to Shelby Co., IL until about 1858. Regardless of why and how James and Sarah Storm came to Shelby Co., IL, it was in this county that they died and were buried in the burial ground of James' brothers and sister.

      Interestingly, though, is the fact that the oldest son, John Storm [1809-1835], had previously been in Indiana and came to Shelby County, IL with the first Storm settlers of the county. Also coming, perhaps directly or indirectly from Kentucky, were the in-laws of John Storm [1809-1835], William and Elizabeth Bobbitt Morgan. Although John Storm died at a very early adult age, he had four sons, so there were descendants of James Storm [1786-1863] already in the county to welcome them at their arrival. Another son, Jacob Storm, died in Kentucky prior to James and Sarah Storm coming to Shelby County, IL. The son of Jacob Storm, namely Henderson Storm, came to Shelby Co., IL with James and Sarah Storm, with the later arrival of Jacob Storm's daughter Margaret, by that time married to Wilson Renner.

      The wife of James Storm, as related by previous studies, was always said to be Sarah McHargue, but DNA studies prove that Sarah was actually Sarah Robins, daughter of Vincent Robins and Charity Ryker. The marriage of James Storm and Charity Robins is documented by a marriage which took place in Shelby County, Kentucky, in 1810.

      groom's name: James Storm
      bride's name: Sarah Robins
      marriage date: 26 Jul 1810
      marriage place: , Shelby, Kentucky
      indexing project (batch) number: M53128-3

      It is also believed that the following is the mother of James Storm's oldest child, John [1809-1835]:

      groom's name: James Storm
      bride's name: Easter Boyles
      marriage date: 26 Apr 1808
      marriage place: Winchester, Clark County, Kentucky
      indexing project (batch) number: M01599-5
      system origin: Kentucky-EASy
      source film number: 1943687

      From what has been gleaned about these faithful pioneer leaders of the Christian faith, it is with certainty that we can be assured that they spent their lifetime being more concerned about people than about material security.
