What was James wife's name?
There is a listing in 1920 that could be him - wife Mildred(the index says Halders but it is Mildred- you mentioned a daughter Mildred) but didn't name the wife.
Surnames get so distorted in census - take a look at:
Name: James L Gillispie
The fact that this James is listed as mulatto in 1920 and yours is listed as black in 1910 is also of no matter - different county, different census taker.
Keep as a possible?
