Yes, that's my great great grandpa. I have both birth dates for him from different sources. The one I gave is from his gravestone. So is the death date. The birth date you gave I have from another source, which I can't get at right now because I'm locked out of my cited records on Ancestry.com until I renew my paid membership. The marriage information came from the North Carolina Marriage Collection, 1741-2004 on Ancestry.com. The rest of the information I got from 4 death certificates, 2 obituaries and a draft registration card for the children. I have almost all of the information for Maude Ellen Marley's descendants, except for 4 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild who were all adopted by other families. I've been trying for 12 years to find out more about James' first wife, Katie, and her family, but any information on James' family is appreciated. I'd like to know more about your book, too. Thanks!
