bullet  Research Notes:

My own research was limited to the years James lived in Wayne County, Kentucky. Information about him and his family in Indiana comes from the records of Jan Vanatta. Since this is Edna Stockton's line, I would have liked to include contact information for one of her descendants who has continued her work. Unfortunately, I do not know of any such individual. Jan Vanatta, however, does have more information about this line.
