According to "McElyea's in Transit," Fred is the father of Jesse.

The book lists three marriages for Fred. First marriage, the wife was unnamed. Children of that marriage: Elinor, b. 1855; Melissa, b. 1857; William Joseph, b. 1858.

Second marriage to Amanda about 1864. Children of that mariage: Jesse James b. 1865; Margaret S. b. 1868.

Third marriage to Frances Bowles nov. 8, 1871. Children of that marriage: John, b. 1873; Mary, b. 1875; Rebecca, b. 1877.

Although "McElyea's in Transit," is a wonderful book, there are errors in it. Hopefully, the above will give you a starting point.
