*********************************
From the records of the Oklahoma Historical Society - Choctaw Indian Biographies {Submitted by Mrs. W.W. Wilson, 4111 Travis St., Dallas Texas}

Jane James was born in Mississippi. She was the daughter of a white father, Dace James, and an Indian mother [Ruthie - LNU]. Her father Dace died in June 1837 in Lowndes County, MS. Jane came with her mother to Oklahoma Indian Territory as an infant in 1837 {as part of the Chickasaw Removal} , but was soon orphaned.
Jane was reared at the Wheelock Mission {probably until her marriage in 1850 at age 12 to John Wilson}.
