  • Notes 
    • The 1871 UK Census for Kings Norton, Worcestshire, England shows the family living at King’s Heathe Bleke Lane Lodge to King’s Heath House, Kings Norton. Ada M Whiting is listed as the step-daughter of John James. Amy K James is listed as his daughter.

      Cindy remembers her dying in her little house and in her own bedroom at the age of 86. Two memories of her pop immediately, she used to let Cindy help her get eggs from the chickens in the coop not far from her front door. The little house was behind Uncle George Truss and Aunt Lydia's house on Mistuxet Avenue, Stonington, CT. The lot was deep an had room for both houses with a separate garage shop between the front house and the back house.

      She also had a "bottle doll" not sure what else to call it. One head was white and the other was black. The grand-daughters used to flip it one way and then the other every time we went in and out of the house. The calico skirts were different colors on each doll and the head must have rested in the neck of the milk bottle which was weighted with sand to act as a doorstop. I found this image online. [3]
