William James (1754-1805), believed to have been born in Pembrokeshire, Wales, immigrated to America with his family. He originally settled in Montgomery Co., Pennsylvania but later they moved to Virginia, where he settled near Lickinghole Creek in Goochland County. He married Mary Hines in 1774. They were the parents of seven children. Their son John James (1775-1827) was the progenitor of Frank and Jesse James, the notorious outlaws. He married Mary "Polly" Poor, the daughter of Robert Poor and Elizabeth Mims of Goochland County. They left Virginia in 1811 and settled lands in Logan Co., Kentucky. They were the parents of eight children. Their son Robert Sallee James married Zerelda Cole in 1841. They moved their family to Missouri in 1842. They were the parents of Frank and Jesse and two other children. Several generations of descendants are given.
