    -------------------------------

    Lucretia died some time around 1855.  In the 1860 census, his wife's name is Rosa M Webb (Rosa Mariah Collins according to another researcher).  Lucretia's two sons reported in 1850 are in the household with matching ages.  From the gap in children's ages, the next child, Joseph, age 6, apperars to be Rosa's first child with James,.  From his reported age of 6 here, he was born about 1854.  So we may place Lucretia's death and James' marriage to Rosa in 1855.  It could have been 1854
