I knew that sooner or later someone would post a followup message. Thank you very much. I believe that my James P. was probably named after an Alfred Pinkard who lived on Pine Mountain, Georgia, near the Hendry family because they had a habit of naming children after relatives and close friends except for a couple named after counties. That is, if his middle name was Pinkard. James P. eventually ended up living in the Valley area - Lanett, Alabama and West Point, Georgia. Of course, so many families did because of the mills. Your Pinkard line may or may not be connected somehow, but probably not by blood. To date, I have not found his name listed with the middle name. He referred to himself as Jim or Jim P. or James P or J. P. Makes me wonder if he knew what the "P" stood for. Older family members are comfortable with Pinkard so I will leave it at that until proven otherwise.
