Now there's a thought. I think the notes on the back of a photo of George James Bumpus read "James Bumpus, Uncle" and were made by Mary. George and Mary married after Jessie James was killed and I see the notes as Mary's way of keeping her new husbands family straight. I'll look up those notes to see if I remember it right.

Are we just assuming that 'Uncle James' was a Bumpus? Could he have been James Ballinger or could 'Uncle Jesse' have been a James?
