  • Notes 
    • A native American of the Tohono O'odham tribe who reside primarily in the Sonoran Desert of the southeastern Arizona and northwest Mexico. "Tohono O'odham" means "Desert People." Although they were previously known as the Papago, they have largely rejected this name (meaning literally "tepary-bean eater"), which was applied to them by conquistadors, who had heard them called this by other Piman bands who are very competitive with the Tohono O'odham. The term Papago derives from Ba:bawiko'a, meaning "eating tepary beans", which was pronounced Papago by the Spanish.

      It is likely that both wives are the same woman based on the similarity of their names (James & Jim). Only Tillie appears in census records (1920) and no marriage records are found for either.

      He was a mine worker at the time of his son Joe's birth.
