Biographical data
Name: McConnell, James S.  
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
According to John Paul Phillips, this is the son of James McConnell, 1829-1914, as listed in Gaige. Hilbert has 'John S. McConnell' in his book on Shipley (p.282). Could these have been different players? To confuse matters further, Hilbert also has a 'J.C. McConnell' (p.322), presumably not the same person.
