Joe:Thanks for the census data you sent me, and I think I can help you.This info is from my grandmother's family bible. I think you are referring to James Monroe Venters (called Monroe), born 5 Feb 1864, d. 18 Jun 1935) married to Millie Francis Ratliff (b. 12 AUg 1969, d. 10 Jun 1915. 10 children: William S., John E., James H., Lon M., Ernest J., Bernard A., Ola, Adam, Myrtle, & Selden.
The birth dates don't quite jive, but the names do.
