married a woman named Kate. A daughter, Sudie B., born December of 1891 is with them. Kate shows 
0/0 for children born and living, so Sudie was born of a previous wife or adopted. Assuming for 
now that James F. and Frank were same person - will "break out" if proof found of their being separate
individuals(1860 and 1870 censuses should prove). 1900 - Frank, May 1851, Steamboat Engineer, NC NC NC;
