Ben James

I'm trying to locate information concerning my g.g.grandmother, Elizabeth Catherine Sevier, born to Elizabeth Mackey and George Wallace Sevier born 1844; died 1929 in Memphis, Texas. She married Jack Mabry 1866 in Milford, Texas, who died February 15, 1873 in Ellis County, Texas.

Later, she married a Ben or Benjamin James. She had a daughter, Bettie (my g.grandmother), born October 29, 1876. Bettie married Henry Roller Blum and he died 1938. Bettie and Henry had 5 children: Blanche Delilah (my grandmother), Henry, Lewis, Homer and Emmer (Emma?).

We have tax receipts dated 1870's and mid 1920's where she signed her name as "Mrs. E. C. James". We are trying to obtain information on the James side of her life. We have it narrowed down to between 1878 and 1881 that she would have married Ben James.

If anyone has any information, it would certainly be appreciated!
