Ancestors of Cleo Letha Chambers


      14. James Alexander Minor10, born Abt. 1818 in AL; died Aft. 1880 in Possibly Autauga County, AL. He was the son of 28. James Minor and 29. Sarah Oden. He married 15. Lucinda McCain January 12, 1848 in Autauga County, AL.

      15. Lucinda McCain, born November 01, 1828 in TN; died April 30, 1870 in Elmore County, AL. She was the daughter of 30. Glover McCain and 31. Abigail Goodman.

Notes for James Alexander Minor:
ANCESTRY ON THE MINOR FAMILY PRIOR TO JAMES ALEXANDER MINOR HAS NOT BEEN 100% PROVEN. THE INFORMATION IS THEORY BASED ON THE CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE AVAILABLE.

1850 Coosa County AL census, page 55, household #756 (living in the home of Glover McCain)
1850 Coosa County AL census, page 72, household #999

Since there was approximately a three week period between the time household #756 and #999 were counted, it is thought that James Minor and his bride, Lucinda McCain, moved from living with her parents to a home of their own during that three week period; therefore being counted twice.

1860 Coosa County, AL census, page 193, occupation is listed as Wheelwright:
1870 Elmore County, AL census, page 150, occupation is listed as Wheelwright
1880 Autauga County, AL census, parents of James listed as both being born in SC

Some researchers believe that James Alexander Minor was a son of James Minor Sr. and Sarah Oden, a daughter of Alexander Oden. While no concrete proof exists, some circumstantial evidence does shed favorable light on this theory. First, the names James and Alexander being family names. Second, the 1880 census lists the parents of James Minor as being born in SC; both the Minors and Odens moved to AL from SC in the early 1800's.
