James M WESTMORELAND(1857-1907) married Josephine Malinda (Josie) DURHAM in Floyd County, Ga. in 1880. After several years there,James moved his family to Cherokee County. AL. Sometime after the 1900 census, he settled in Winston County where he died in 1907. James is buried at the Friendship Bapt. Church cem., as is Josie(1859-1942) and several of the children. I'm not certain that I know the names of all the children but these are the ones noted from census records: Mary E.,Henry L.,John R.,George E.,Maggie R., William D., James M., Warren J., Onie J., and Emmitt O.
I hope someone can help me fill in the gaps with this family. Were James'parents Thomas WESTMORELAND and Temperance Johnson of Spartanburg SC?
Is there a picture of Josie available? Can anyone tell me more about the DURHAM family?
Josie's parents were Warren and Malinda DURHAM. Josie's siblings were Margaret,Mary (Gosnell) Eliza( Green), Angeline (Weatherby), Hester(Landrum), Warrren(m. Emily Hampton), Rufus(m. Victoria Maddox), Lutheria(Walker) and Sophia(?died as a child).
