Although some list another child of James S. and Civel as being James Daniel
Josey b. 1871, I feel that he is not. My mother, Kathleen Martin Rogers,
daughter of Elizabeth Josey Martin and Marcellus Martin (1909-1999) reported
that her mother was the youngest child of James S. and Civel. I also find
it suspect that there would be 2 sons named James that both lived to adulthood.
Judy Bethea, descendant of Mary Josey Payne reports that James Daniel is
the son of Elizabeth S. Josey, sister of James S. Josey.
