This is your leaf blower, Eric James.
 
Stray Leaves has been published now since 1997. Great things have happened in that time. Countless stray leaves have been raked back into our family forest, many starting new trees of their own. Our forest of families has become thick and luxuriant, the envy of many. Time has come, though, to take Stray Leaves to a new level.
 
Our new blog Leaves of Gas is just one of the first new improvements. This blog is open to your participation. Here you can make additions and corrections to our genealogy; add stories, photos, and biographical data; and share your joys, losses, and current events. In the right column, you can check for the latest postings, and respond to them if you wish.
 
In the year to come, watch for new improvements to Stray Leaves. You’ll get notice of them right here.
 
Best regards,
ERIC F. JAMES

We have hints from the Clay County Archives in charge of James Farm in Kearney, Missouri, that a road leading to the farm will be renamed Charles Broomfield Rd. Charlie was a Clay County Commissioner who took an active role in arranging the sale and transfer of James Farm from the James family to Clay County. See MoreSee Less

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.
