Still need to locate family - I have no clues past his life. James Louis lived in TN with FA (name unk, German) and MO (Cherokee, name unk) possibly Overton Co (unsure) lots of siblings that moved to Pikes Co, Ark area (unsure) James' FA was in the confederate army. When James' mother died, he remarried a lady (german, name unk). This step MO was mean to him so he ranaway. Westerman may have had two N's.A cousin said James Louis once said his name was too long so he was taking off one of the N's (unsure).He may have been born between 1850 to 53.There are TX docs: death certificate, and his tombstone in TX with different dates.Thank you for any help.
