James Albert BONDURANT and Martha Jane McLEAN were my great great grandparents. James went by Albert and by J. A. James was born in Pike County, Missouri in 1854 and Martha Jane was born in 1859 in Lawrence County, Tennessee. They met in Pike County, Missouri and married in 1877 in Audrain County, Missouri. They have eight children that I can prove. Bertha (1878-?), Dora (1880-1929), Effie (1881-1882), Dollie (1883-?), Rolla (1886-1890), Urban (1891-1899), Willie (1896-1896) and Virginia (1901-1981).
James Albert and Martha Jane settled in Colorado before 1890. I descend fromt heir daughter, Virginia. Virginia had also went by Virgie. Virginia married John Wallace RUSSELL in 1926 in Denver, Colorado. They had one child, Martha Ann RUSSELL.
James was the son of William West BONDURANT and Susan F. LACY. Martha Jane McLEAN was the daughter of Melchezdick Duncan McLEAN (and his first name is spelled several ways so we dubbed him M. D.)
