Jesse James and his wife/cousin Zerelda had 2 children
Jesse Edward James (born August 31, 1875 – March 26, 1951)
and
Mary Jane Susan James on June 17, 1879 - October 11, 1935

Jesse Edward James became a lawyer and moved to California.
He marred Stella Frances McGowan in 1900 and they had 4 children:
Lucielle Martha James (born December 21, 1900 – June 11, 1988)
Josephine Frances James (born April 20, 1902 – March 31, 1964)
Jessie Estell James (born August 27, 1906 – February 2, 1987)
Ethell Rose James (born July 10, 1908 – December 30, 1991)

I did not say Frank and Jesse had no living descendants!!!!!
I said all their descendants had other names than James.

Jesse had 1 son and 1 daughter. His son married had 5 girls. When they married they all took their husbands last
name.

Frank had 1 son and 1 daughter. His son was childless.

The book I got my information from was co-authored by one of Jesse's grandsons and one of his great grandsons.

Who did Frank James' daughter marry, and how far down does her line travel? We are supposed to be descendants of Frank James and since his son was childless, that means we would have come from her downline. Do you have any more information on this?

It seems like the more I dig in to this, the more confused I get!...LOL! The information I have found on the internet says that Frank's only son's name is Robert Franklin James, and that he had been married twice but I didn't see anything I children. And I saw that someone posted that he had a daughter also, but I haven't seen that anywhere else. Anyone who can help on this matter please do!

And didn't they have some children who carried different names due to the brothers using false names to hide from the law?
