"...James DuBose who was born in 1801 in South Carolina. He was married in 1837 to Mary ? who was born in 1814 in South Carolina. Family legend contends that the family moved to Alabama by wagon train circa 1830 to the Banks community in Pike County. There is also a record of a John DuBose III who settled his family in the same area about the same time, so he is likely a relative of James DuBose...

The sources for this writing include family records, newspaper stories, and an article in one of the heritage books. Appreciation is expressed in particular to Betty Jo (DuBose) Wambles of Opp for sharing her family records.

"Brothers were Deshabo and Robert. Both are sons of Jeptha son of Jeptha, son of John, son of Peter.' Rural Land Owners of Barbour County, Alabama 1851."

Note from Robert Bradley

(So, and I'm thinking while I type, does this mean that James' name could have been Jeptha James, like his son? If that's the case, then I would know the names of his father and grandfather)
