SURNAMES: JAMES, HINES, LEE, DAVIS, POOR, FARRIS, CARPENTER, FLAT, MERRICK,


Would like to trace our roots back to ENGLAND.

WILLIAM JAMES(born 1754 - died 1805) married Mary Hines (7/15/1774) Goochland County, VA. The both came from ENGLAND

Their Seven Children:
1 John M.(born 1775 - died 1827
2 Nancy Ann (born 2/24/1777
3 Mary (married Edward Lee 12/22/1796
4 William James Jr. (born 4/27/1782 - died 1807)
5 Thomas (born 12/4/1783) married Mary B. Davis 9/3/1834
6 Richard (married Mary G. Poor) 12/18/1813
7 Martin (born 1789-died 1867)married Elizabeth Key
11/21/1825

THIS IS WHERE THE BREAK DOWN IS - WE NEED TO TIE WILLIAM JAMES TO HENRY B. JAMES (see below)

HENRY B. JAMES (born 1830) in Kentucy, died 1909. He married Sarah Boger, 1853.

Their Seven Children:
1 JOHN JESSE JAMES (1855-1935)
2 Mary (born 1857) married a Farris,
3 James James (born 1859),
4 William Green (born 1861) married a Mary, their children:
(Pearl - 1887, Bessie - 1889 and Elbert 1891),
5 Henry Etta (married a Carpenter),
6 Nancy Ann married a Flat,
7 Margaret married a Merrick.

JOHN JESSE JAMES married Nancy Ann Long, August 15, 1878 in Newton County, Missouri. They had 12 children: William Green, Robert Lee, Sarah Ettie, Sherman Luther, Ada Bessis Francis, Earl McClellen, Henry B, Frank Austin, Nettie, Myrtle Irene, Jessie and Leola.

John's daughter Sarah Ettie was never mentioned. I am curious to know more about her. She married James F. Holder in 1899 in Missouri. They had five sons, Johnny E, William Lee, Charlie, Robert and Eddie. They moved to Eatonville, Washington with John and Nancy approximately in 1910. Sarah died in Eatonville in 1913 at the age of 31. She is buried beside her mother and father and her son, Eddie. I believe her husband returned to Missouri with their four sons. Today, I think some of Sarahs family may be living in Oregon.

Would appreciate information concerning Sarah, her husband James Holder or other descendants of her family. ALSO info on:
WILLIAM JAMES - HENRY B. JAMES - JOHN JESSE JAMES

I APPRECIATE YOUR HELP! THIS CAN DRIVE A PERSON CRAZY! BUT, OH WHAT FUN!!!!
