Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 1, 1866
Russell County
Alabama, USA
Death: Mar. 20, 1947
Russell County
Alabama, USA

Husband of Frances("Fannie")Caroline WYNN.
Son of (Joseph) Joshua Thigpen and Martha Elizabeth Kindred.

I've listed him as his father's Will recorded his name.
Several census' list him as, "James J.", but one (1930) list him as, "Joshua J.". He was recorded as, "Joshua J." in his father's 1891 will, and the Alabama Death Index list him as, "James J." in 1947. His granddaughter, Betty, could not say for certain which was correct. She said they (grandchildren) always called him "Big Daddy", and she heard his friends call him "Big Jim".
