In the June 1900 census of Cedar, San Miquel County, Colorado, James Thomas Botts, Sr. was enumerated as a single person household, 55 years old, a widower and farmer. Then in the April 1910 census he was enumerated at Elgin City, Union County, Oregon as a 62 year old widower operating a lodging house along with two Chinese Americans, proprietors of a restaurant associated with Botts' lodging establishment.
Then in the January 1920 enumeration of the City of Pocatello, Idaho he was residing as a 74 year old widower with his only known child, son James Thomas Botts, Jr., the latter's wife and his son's only known child, son Roy.
Shortly after the April 1920 census the James Botts, Jr. family relocated to Brigham City, Utah where James Botts Sr. died having been a resident of that city for only nine months. His death, as reported by his son, states he was a miner and prospector. The latter form of employment may well describe the father's apparent roving nature.
