I could not find Cordelia's birth record, Johnson was not very good about recording the births of his female children. Nothing is known about Delia and James except that their family supposedly lived in Austinville. They are both interred in Fowler Cemetery and the dates of birth and death are those on their grave markers. Anyone with knowledge - please contact me.

James and Delia's children include:
1. Bertha M. (APR-1893);

2. Homer R. (31-AUG-1895 to 19-Jan-1918); and

3. Frank M.(NOV or AUG-1897). Homer R. Richardson is buried next to Cordelia and Booker with his date of birth given as 31-AUG-1885 and death as 19-JAN-1918. Is this their son or a brother or other relative of Booker. If their son the birth year is incorrect.

The family was in Carroll County for the 1900, 1910 and 1920 censuses. Homer was not listed in the 1920 census. They were in Wythe County for the 1930 census. Cordelia is usually listed as Delia. Frank and his family are living with them, Emma, age 32, born in VA; Hubert?, age 7, born in MO; Thomas, age 1 11/12, born in MO and Homer, age 8/12, born in MO. Bertha is not with the family for the 1930 census.
