      In a letter of Mrs. C. (Charles) Wanlass dated 1932 in Salt Lake City, Utah, (while going through her husband', family records) she found that her husband's father, John Wanlass, was born Jan 3, 1822 at Hunslet ,York, Eng, the son of William Wanlass - born 1792 of Edinburg, Scotland, and Hanah - born about 1794 of Leeds York, England. They had the following children: William born 1820 at Leads, York, England, John born Jan 8, 1822 Husled, York, Eng., James born 1827 at Hunsled, York, England. The account says that shortly after James was born in 1827, the mother died and a year later John remarried and James was placed in an orphanage. A cousin of John Wanlass, Wilford Hunter, wrote that James was placed in an orphanage. [Alona Perkes]
      -- Note from Holly: It's true that James's mother Ann Hattersley died about 18 months after his birth, but William remarried in 1827 and James is shown with his father in the 1841 and 1851 census, so if he was raised by others, he rejoined his father later.
