The James Gang began when Lucy Frances Garrett united
with Bob James in marriage on May 15, 1979. Contrary to popular belief,
the shotguns were NOT painted white. As a matter of fact, no shotguns
were even needed.
Lucy was the breadwinner, a role she has often had to assume, while Bob was going to school. She worked for Texas Electric (no, we didn't get free electricity....we had to pay the same as everybody else) holding the company together until the James Gang left Fort Worth in 1983. Of course, by that time the gang had grown in size. Two additions came in Fort Worth and the last one joined in Corpus Christi.
Lucy is currently working as a sign language interpreter, and is a Past President
of Texas Society of Interpreters for the Deaf (TSID).
Timothy Garrett James was born on September 17, 1981. He is presently
protecting our country, now that he is an Army of One, stationed in Hawaii. I keep hearing that even
though he is an Army of One, there are a few other people helping him protect us.
Joseph Hart James joined the gang on June 14, 1983. He is getting
ready to graduate from high school. He is taking the Cisco training course and working
to finish a two year course in just one year. He is doing very well at it! He also is a
teen-ager. [sigh] I don't know about you, but since my boys have become teenagers, I
can't count the number of times I called my parents to apologize!
Elizabeth Chase James decided to make her entrance into the world on 2/28/88, giving us a full house in more ways than one. (she decided a Sunday birth was more inconvenient for her preacher father than a leap day birth) Elizabeth juste entered her teenage years and she seems to have learned too many teen-age tricks from her brothers. ;-) She does have one thing her brothers don't have, her own homepage!
This is the James Gang , warts and all. They can be found in many locations around Corpus Christi...especially at Scholastic Chess Tournaments. If seen, do not attempt to apprehend and do not notify authorities. You may feed them. You may smile and introduce yourself.
