Hi - my name is Morris M King - a man named James 'Popa Jim' Garrett was my great grandfather out of Buckingham County VA! I am of Afro-
American decedent and have been doing research on this section of my family tree for over 10 years now! We know very little about James Garrett beginnings - but my mother who just passed last Sept. said that he died sometime in the late 1920's or very early 30's! He was a very fair Black man or he was white - we are not sure! But he did tell her that as a child he remembered sitting on a horse next to the overseer or master looking over the slaves in the fields - so it is believed that he had some 'status'! Any info that you could provide would be of great importance - hope to hear from you soon! Morris
