James Family Tree

James Arthur was also married twice. He married Segrid Thersa Hokanson on 19 May 1909 in Swea City. She was born there on 8 Jun 1889 in Swea City. They had three children; Maxine ELaine born 19 Oct 1910, Irwin Fred born 1 Jun 1914, Beryl James born 22 Jul 1917. Segrid died at that time probably from the results of child birth. Three years later James married Gladys Bernice Rutherford on 8 Mar 1922 in Stillwater, Minnesota. Gladys was born 18 Aug 1892 in Washington County, Minnesota. They lived for many years in Fairmont, Minnesota where James was a buttermaker. They had also three children, all born in Fairmont; Marcella Ruth Jane on 6 Mar 1923, Velma Fae on 14 Mar 1927, and Glendon Rutherford McAdams on 8 Mar 1935. I remember Glendon quite well as we were children about the same age and saw one another at family affairs. James died in Fairmont on 4 Jan 1957. Six years later Gladys died on 5 Apr 1963.
