My mother, maiden name James, of Church Road, Dinwiddie Co., VA. Her mother was a Ford of Church Road area where many Fords still live and are buried at Trinity United Methodist Church (Church Road.) There are also many Fords in Dinwiddie and Amelia Co. My mother's father was a James who had roots in Hanover Co. He and my mother are buried at Sunset Cemetery in Chester, VA....Alfred James/Frances Lee James Davis. Her grandfather, also Alfred James, is buried in Chesterfield Co in a small family cemetery near Rt. 10 and I-295 (recently discovered by me.) I would like to share what info I have and get more on the Hanover/Caroline Co. JAMES family. I have some evidence that the James' also resided in Ashland and even Petersburg areas as well. A great uncle is buried near off of Rt. 1 near the Halfway House near Chester. I have also recently found James relatives in TEXAS where it appears that 100+ years ago, brothers went to Texas and others stayed in the greater Richmond/Petersburg/Ashland areas. Please contact me. I would like to fill in this part of the family and share and obtain other info with interested persons and, hopefully, unknown James family. Ronald W. Davis 11/30/96
