Ruby Lee Hunt-Whitney 1930-2011

Ruby Lee Hunt-Whitney has died. Distantly related to the James through her ancestry among the Ironmonger family and the royal families of England, Ruby bore the unique distinction of also being related to the family of Sheriff Wyatt Earp, and his Earp relatives in Somerset, Pulaski County, Kentucky.

Ruby is more closely related to the James through her ancestry in the Randall family, an in-law family of the James, many of whom still reside upon the original settlement lands of John M. James in Shopville, Pulaski County, Kentucky.

Her obituary follows:

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.
