Well here goes
I'm the son of a James Conway Masters. And I'm one of 4 boys. I'm 46 now and the younger of the 4 boys. My mom and JC Masters spit up when I was 2 years old. And JC Masters played no part in our lives. He is a retired police chief of Newton NC and now lives in Charlotte NC. I have made several tries to get some information from him on my ancestry with only limited results.
J.C. Masters is not from N.C. but from Texas. He has a brother named Billy Gene Masters that lives in Beaumont Texas. J C Masters was born in Trout LA. on 5\\14\\ 30. J C and Billy Gene's fathers name was James Author Masters also born in Trout LA. 11\\30\\09. I don't know when Author masters and family move to Texas. But they lived in a small town called Pineland and worked for Tempo wood co. This much is good info,but now it gets a little unsure.
James Author Masters fathers name was James Washington Masters. I think his DOB was 1873 and some where in LA. And his fathers name was Andrew Jackson Masters . And I have no idea where he was from. Thats where my story ends. If you can shine any light on this story please let me know.
Looks like this part of the Masters family like to name there kids after Presidents.....
