Notes:

 

James W. James (1837-1897) was the son of George Washington James (1812-1864) and Elizabeth West of Bedford County, Virginia.

 

James W. James (1837-1897) - Records indicate that James W. James may have been married twice.  James is also reported to have been married to Jenetta Cochran (-1911).  However, James was 21 years old at the time of his marriage to Jennetta H. West in 1858 and Jennetta H. West is known to be the mother of James’ youngest child, his daughter Inez Ethel James born in 1880.  Thus, we know that James W. James was married to Jennetta H. West for a minimum of 22 years.  The question is whether James W. James married Jenetta Cochran after 1880?
