  Text: Interpolating his year of birth from various Census records as 1871.
"FamilySearch.org in their database collection titled "Illinois, Deaths and Stillbirths, 1916-1947", lists a birthday of 12 October 1870 but they do not provide a specific source for the information. Much of their data includes that which has been entered into their Family History records by LDS members tracing their ancestors. When no specific and traceable sources are listed, we discount the data somewhat. In this instance, the October 1870 date is within interpolation margins and therefore could possibly provide the same 1871 result. FamilySearch.org also lists Liberty, Mo ‎(Clay County)‎ as his place of birth. This may be possible but it also is not verified in any census records.

Just found 1900 Census record for Cook County, Illinois confirms the date of birth as October 1870. We will now use that date as verified.

  Text: Compare the two census transcriptions following...1900 and 1910. The 1900 census shows James as a single boarder;' while the 1910 census lists James, his wife Elizabeth and daughter Virginia. It also indicates they have been married for 9 years and their daughter is age 8, which should establish a marriage date of 1901. Virginia is age 8 as of April 1910. Her date of birth was probably in late 1901 or early 1902.
