James Grimes
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 17, 1864
Garrard County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Apr. 5, 1944
Jessamine County
Kentucky, USA

James was the son of Moses and Fannie Cheatham Grimes. He married, Mollie, the daughter of William H. and Asenith Hodge Delaney, on November 25, 1897 in Jessamine County. Their marriage ended in divorce and Mollie married Charles Davis. No children were born of either of Mollie's marriages. Mr. Grimes did not marry again. He earned his living by working as a farmer.

Note: The 1870 year of birth, which is inscribed upon his headstone, was also given by the informant (his sister, Pauline) on his DC. That year of birth is incorrect and would drastically change his birth order among his siblings. In both censuses where he lived in his parent's home and on his marriage license to Mollie Delaney, his age was listed as b. 1864.
