Unfortuantly there is no obit for James Pope. The only document found that shows the names of James's parents is his death certificate. He married Darthula Catherine Spurlock in 1871 probably in Pike Co., KY, but again no names of his parents.
On the 1860 Ashe co., NC census there is a George Pope 32, wife Caroline 33 and a son James 6, Mary 5, William 4 and Martha 3 This looks pretty good to be the same James Pope, especially since names of his parents are the same as on his DC. His mother's name is Joncie on his DC but that could have been Johnson. There is a James Pope 18 on 1870 Pike Co., KY census and since James and Darthula probably married in Pike Co this is also likely the same James Pope.
Darthula was sister to my 3g grandfather.
