Colleen,my earliest Bage is James Alexas Bagem born August 16, 1863 in Victoria, MO.I have him listed with these family members: wife Therma E. Graham born 1881 Ohio, and children Samuel James and Della Kathleen.Samuel James is the SJ Bage that married Lillie Self. They had a son, James Jr., in 1923. Do you have this or something different?This is listed in my file as unverified, so I can't prove it.
I would love to fill in any gaps if possible.Lillie Self is the daughter of Henry Sheridan Self and Allie Cummings. Senry died in 1904 at age 39 and Allie lived to be 101.
