I am searching for information on my great grandfather Toney James . I'm not sure that James was his last name before he
came to America. I have heard that it was James, or possibly Jamos, Dimitrios, Dimitrakopoulos, Dimitras, Dimitroff, Demetroff, or even Kalza or Calza.
All I know is that he was born in Macedonia in sometime between 1877-1887. He moved to America to Greene
County, Indiana and worked on the railroad, married a woman named Goldie Bingham, and died in Greene County in 1980. I have been told that he later went back to bring his sister to
America. Her name was possibly Anna and she may have lived in Chicago?? I don't know anything about her. On his marriage certificate he stated that his parents names were Jim and Maggie. On some census records he has put that he was born in Greece, most records say Macedonia, but another one says Turkey. His census records also say that he was naturalized, but I can't find documentation of that, or any immigration records.
I would greatly appreciate any information on him, my distant relatives, or anything about the last name James
