Biography

1920 Census

James was counted twice in 1920: In his parents' home on his wedding day, 14 Jan, and two weeks later with his wife Ada.

Date of Birth

James's World War I draft card, the earliest source giving his full date of birth, shows 25 Jan 1896. His headstone shows a date exactly two years earlier, and no other source gives a date that early. For that reason, 1896 is used on this profile.
