  • Notes 
    • Sister Gertrude was pregnant with her daughter Joyce when he died.

    Born:
    • Does not appear to have been born in Edgecombe County - they could not locate his birth certificate.

    Died:
    • per conversation with Gertrude on 1/29/06 -- James was asthmatic and one day while going up the stairs in the home, he fell down one level. Gertrude's in-laws were staying with them at the time, and her mother-in-law came to her and told her her brother had fallen. He died right away. They believe it was an asthma attack.
