James Rosser Billups
Birth: Oct. 4, 1880
Belvidere
Perquimans County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Jan. 5, 1943
Norfolk
Norfolk City
Virginia, USA

The husband of Mary Elsie (Banks) Billups. I believe he died at Lake Taylor City Hospital. He was the father of Elsie Lee Billups Dods

I never knew my Grandfather but, I was named after him.

During the Depression, he owned three businesses. One of them was a grocery store. According to my mother, people would come to him and ask for food, because they did not have any money. They promised to pay him back when they could. Grandpa always gave them food knowing that he would probably never be paid back. But that was OK with him. He was a kind man. I wish I could have known him.
