  • Notes 
    • Known from Steve Bush's e-mail. He writes:-

      My Uncle Bob, Robert James Jr., was born September 6, 1894 at Southend on Sea. He was also a sign painter like his brother Harold. He was in the US Army in World War I, but never made it "over there", and conducted training for inductees. He married Ethel Webster Black, who he met in an Armistice Day parade. She was a dressmaker at an exclusive shop in Pittsburgh. They lived in the Wilkensburg part of Pittsburgh and had no children. She died July 28, 1978, and he died October 12, 1975. I remember him mostly as a big gentle man with very big strong hands - like my grandfather and his father.
