Rev. Joseph Martin Shadowen, b. 1848

Thanks to Brother Wendell Butte for providing this rare image of a grandson of the “talented, but erratic” Joseph Martin James.

Rev. Joseph Martin Shadowen served as pastor of Bethlehem, Mount Lebanon, Pleasant Hill, and Pitman Creek Baptist Churches. He is buried in the cemetery at Bethlehem Baptist Church. He is the son of Sally James (1817-1898) and Samuel Chaudoin Sr. (1813-1893). His twin sister, Martha Ann Shadowen, is the spouse of Rev. William Madison “Matt” Roy, who also served Bethlehem Church.

FIND-A-GRAVE BLUNDERS LEAVE JAMES FAMILY HOWLING . . . Can you spot the errata in this Find a Grave post for the grandfather of Frank & Jesse James? The most glaring deception is the photograph!

History tells us the photograph was invented about the time John M. James was dying. Neither history, nor the administrator of this posting, Charlotte Raley McConaha, can tell us is how photographic technology made its way from France to the distant American frontier to take a photo of John M. James, months before his demise.

Another imprecise miscalculation in this post is the attribution of the middle name “Martin” to John M. James. The name never has been proved by evidence. To guess the name is unreliable and wrong.

JAMES-YOUNGER GANG TO CLOSE . . . Sad news as Danny Urban, former President of the J-Y Gang, posted to Facebook that the organization is about to disband. Here’s the statement: "It is a sad year for us in the Gang. Since I originally posted this, we have lost members due to death. We are down to around 30, but the Board has decided to shut the Gang down at the end of the year. Donate all of our monies to Non-Profits around the country that are history related in the areas that the real Gang had robbed, etc. Two of our members will be taking over the website and they plan on keeping it going." The photo below is of yours truly in 2002 at the family reunion with some great-grandchildren of Jesse James. The 2017 logo is from the last meeting of the Gang that I helped to organize.
