447. James Eli WALTERS was born in 1849 in Williamson County, Tennessee. He died in 1911 at the age of 62.
James's name was possibly changed - he was Eli, age 1 in 1850, James E., age 10 in 1860. No James is mentioned in his father's estate papers in 1861. However, an Eli A. Jr was named with the implication he was the oldest. Perhaps his name was James Eli and was changed to "Junior" after the death of his father. Or maybe a lawyer was just confused because he was called "Eli".
