Hi all!

This is what I have on our JESSE JAMES. The WILLIAM JAMES part has not
been proven yet. My line is from REV. JESSE JAMES through his son,
CLAYBOURNE JAMES, which is pretty much documented by myself and others.
We don't know for sure JESSE'S parentage, but this has been passed on to
us by others.

Does anyone recognize this JAMES family and can they corroborate the
connection to our REVEREND JESSE JAMES?

Thanks much.

Charlene Holland
