    Notes 
    • In the obituary of Otelia Florence Westbrook, in the Sussex Gazette, August 1937, she was the daughter of Dr. J. J. James, a prominent physician, in Southampton County; however the family bible shows she was the daughter of Dr. Richard Henry James, and John James as her grandfather. Her pictures shown in Brother's Keeper at #1583 were taken on the front porch of her home located on Rt. 601,(Laurel Spring Dr.) about 1 mile off Rt. 40 (MLK Hwy.). Others shown in the group pictures were her daughter, Pearl throwing a snowball at her brother, Moses, and possibly neighbors, Sidney and Sam Riggan,
