I recently lost my father, Shannon Glenn Whittington, and will be picking up where he left off in regards to the family history. We have a tremendous amount of information going back a couple hundred years. Unfortunately, we only have real knowledge after about 1850.
In this data, your James Elem shows up as my Great-Great-Grandfathers brother, born in 1809 in Amite CO., Miss. They had what looks to be 4 brothers and 2 sisters, all born there in Miss.
Some time around 1860 Moses moved his family to Texas and the Oklahoma territory where we had all stayed until my father began to move us due to job opportunities in the 70's.
Though I don't know much more about what seems to be your part of our family, it sounds as if James either followed or led Moses to Texas. There we have all lived, related to one another, without even being aware. What a small world we live in.
Hope this helps, I may have questions of my own in the days ahead.
