James (Jim) was born in Eastland, Texas, but spent most of his childhood in the Dallas/Denton area. He went to high school in Dallas at Lake Highlands High School. He attained a Bachelors Degree in Business at Texas State University (back in the day when it was called Southwest Texas State). He owns his own computer tech support and software company called Club Data Systems. He has been lucky to be married to the same girl, Jan, for 32 years, and counting. He has two grown sons, Daniel and Andrew, who are both Eagle scouts and college graduates. James and Jan currently live up on a scenic hill between Blanco and Wimberley, Texas.
James’ patriot ancestor that fought in the American Revolutionary War is Ithamer Brigham. Ithamer lived in Marlboro, Massachusetts and was in the Massachusetts militia. He was one of the American heroes that responded to the Concord Alarm. James’ other patriot ancestor is his 5th great grandfather, Lt. James Horton. Lt. James Horton was in several regiments of the Continental Army and took part in several battles including the Battle of White Plains.
