Hello Sybil, I am a gggranddaughter of Mary "Polly" James, b. abt.1840, d. abt. 28 June i865 according to General Affidavits for a Civil War pension for her husband Memory Walker. According to relatives, she was the daughter of Isaac James. The date for Isaac James, Sr. birth would be about right to have a daughter her age, but have no proof. I would like more information if you have it. I have seen on marriage liscense records of Winston County, AL that Isaac James was a minister of the Gospel.
