Thanks for the tips, this is new to me, so bear with me. My grandfather John James was born in Boydton VA in 1925. His parents were Roscoe James and Janie Alexander. Roscoe James was born in 1896 in Henrico county VA to John James and Edmonia Rhone? I found this on the 1900 census, Henrico County Varina Township (enumeration district #38, page #8). John James per 1900 census was born in Nov 1859. I believe his father's name was also John James, which I found on the 1870 census, Henrico County, Varina Township pg 4. It listed John James (the age looks to be 49), Jane M 24, Morgan 18, John 13, Jannie or Jennie James 106, Fanny 10. I am not sure of John James' wife's name (on the 1870 census). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
