Baptist preacher; Serelda James, 28 years old; Alexander Franklin James, ten years old; Jesse Woodson James, four years old; Susan James, nine months old.
Garland and Penelope lived near the parents of the notorious Frank and Jesse James, and Penelope was midwife at Jesse's birth. She was the first one to dress the future Missouri badman.
