Cousin Dan has another seemingly unrelated "Loose End" family in his tree. Sarah Self, born July 24th, 1847 in Alabama, married Johnathon James, born March 1846 in Alabama and died in 1932. They were the parents of the following children:

  1. William D., b. Aug. 12, 1871
  2. John W., b. Jan. 15, 1872
  3. Henry, b. Aug. 16, 1874
  4. Benjamin A., b. Sep. 7, 1875
  5. James Bowman, b. Jan. 14, 1875
  6. Margaret E., b. Feb. 17, 1878
  7. Green James, b. about 1879
  8. Delmetee M., b. Oct. 7, 1884
  9. Emma E., b. Oct. 14, 1888
    Sarah died in 1932. Her mother's name was Susanna. This record was obtained from the 1880 census in Cullman Co., Alabama by a relative of my mother. Sarah married Cousin Dan's mother's grandfather, Johnathan James, who was born March 19, 1846 in Alabama. She is sitting as the matriarch surrounded by her son (possibly Ben) and his family.
