James Marion Golden was born in Tallapoosa County, Alabama, on Jan 30, 1846, to Seaborn and Levina Johnston (Hudgins) Golden. He served in Confederate Army in the 47th Regiment, having enlisted at Memphis, Tennessee. A few years after the Civil War had ended, James married Frances Catherine Hornsby on April 30, 1868, in Tallapoosa Co., Alabama. (There is an existing copy of the Marriage License, issued by the State of Alabama, Tallapoosa County). During the next couple of decades, James and Frances had ten children together--six girls and four boys.
Eventually, James moved his family from Alabama westward during the mid 1880s--ending up in the Chickasaw Nation of Indian Territory, by way of Decatur, Wise Co., Texas, which is where his oldest daughter, Martha "Mattie" Golden, met and married Isaac Foster Fullingim, a young widower who was five years her senior.
By 1900 James, Frances and their three youngest children were enumerated in the 1900 Census, along with two of their grandchildren—Henry Fullingim (age 5) and Ada Fullingim (age 4), whose mother, "Mattie" (Golden) Fullingim, had died shortly after having given birth to a little boy in the Spring of 1897, her eighth child in eleven short years of marriage! The 1900 Census record reveals how the young Fullingim children had been taken in and cared for by their maternal kin, the Goldens of Township 4 (near present-day Ada, OK) of the Chickashaw Nation, Indian Territory.
James resided for thirty-two years in Ada, Oklahoma, and only during his lattermost years was he placed in the Veterans' Home in Ardmore, where he died on 2 April, Carter County. He was buried in the Veterans cemetery Ardmore, OK.
