1923 - Two deaths in the same family?  I don't know the story here, it would be interesting to find out what happened to the James women.  I happen to be in contact with Mr. Gregg Davies of Winn Parish, LA, who is a phenomenal resource for Winn Parish history.  He appears to know everyone and almost everything that ever happened there.  I shall have to inquire about this and see if he knows the story.
