Aunt Edna Miles Holland found a picture of whom she believes to be James   Jessup White and his wife Nancy Taylor White, the picture was behind a picture of Jesus Christ which Aunt Edna said for some reason she always thought that she was suppose to keep but couldn't remember why. Then one day cool aid was spilled on the picture and she wanted to keep the frame and when they removed the old picture she remembered why she was supposed to keep it.(As told to me this day April 10, 1991 Betty James Smith.

(Jimie Alice took two pictures and have this one made, reason she looks older than William)

Death: Killed in a car wreck. Uncle Bud was driving, they had taken syrup to Dothan, Al. to sell and going over on a bridge some horses spooked and Uncle Bud lost control of the car and the car ran off the road, killing William Joseph Miles. (After looking at a car like the one they were driving, I believe that the bolt, where the windshield wiper fastened above the window, was the source of the hole in William Joseph Miles head.) Jimie Alice was in the car also, she lived. I have newspaper clipping of the car wreck. I have land records, where Jimie Alice sold the property in Jackson Co., FL in the 1930's before moving to south FL., then she moved back to Jackson Co and then to Chipley, Washington Co., FL.
