The James Watters born 1878 who was married to Sallie (aka Sarah) Sexton did not die in 1937.He remarrieda woman named Arlie and moved his family to South Dakota where he had a son also named James.In the early 1900's, he worked as a judge and later worked on the Alaskan highway (Arlie and James stayed in Meade, So. Dakota during this time).Basil was in Pennington Co., South Dakota in 1910.Daughter Nancy was also in So. Dakota and married a man with the surname McLane, but was widowed shortly after this marriage.Her second husband was my grandfather, Earl H. McIntyre from Monona Co., IA.
The elder James died in Grants Pass, OR in the 60's.I am absolutely positive of this and even have a photo of me on James' lap and my brother on Arlie's. I also have a portrait of Sallie taken not long before her death. C. 1963, I met Winnie during a trip to Oneida, TN. By then she was around 90 and nearing death.She was not quite lucid and insisted that my mother, Sally, was Nancy Belle.
I don't know if you are interested in the history, but while James was away from home working as a judge, Sallie delivered her daughter Nancy home alone before her due date .Basil, age 2, wandered into a creek shortly after Nancy's birth and Sallie rescued him.She died December 03, when her daughter was just a few weeks old.James returned to find his wife dead or almost dead.
Apparently, there were two James' born in 1878 because I have seen this before with another reference to the grave, but again these are close relatives of mine whom I did meet, the gravestone is not this person.
