James is my 2nd maternal Gr-Grandfather through his son Uriah James Warfield (1859-1922). After researching the Warfields for almost four decades, I have concluded his middle name is most likely Rafer, a common name in the Warfield families from Maryland.

Many thanks to Denica and Lisa for the tombstone pictures.
