              Hello Danette.

              The maternal grandparents of James William Ferrell were William J Willoughby and Minnie LLoyd. It was his great-grandmother the one with the surmame Cox.

              William J Willoughby was the son of John Henry Willoughby and Missouri Martha Cox. According to the following death record, William J was born in Chambers Co., AL on 25 Mar 1877 and died in Birmingham, Jefferson Co., AL on 8 Feb 1948:


              William J and Minnie got married in Jefferson Co., AL on 2 Sep 1908:


              They were living in Daviston, Tallapoosa Co., AL on 1920. Myrtle was 7:


              They were back to Birmingham on 1930. Myrtle was 17:


              Myrtle married Vincent Favata. They had two daughters, Mary Angela and Carol Jean, both of them died as a young children:

              Carol: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J6SR-7M1

              Vincent (35) and Myrtle (27) were living with Myrtle's parents (Wm J and Minnie) in Birmingham on 1940. They are listed at the bottom of the following image:


              At the top of image 6 of 22 you will find your James Ferrell. He was 4.

              (According to the 1940 US Census, Myrtle was living in Detroit, MI on 1935. I think this is important to search for the father of James)

              Myrtle died in San Mateo Co., CA on Sep 25 1997 according to the following record:


              Hope the information above helps in your search.

              Welcome to G2G, Danette!  Birmingham is in Jefferson County.  Born in 1934, James might still be alive, and we can't discuss him.  Do you know if he's still alive?
