James L. Courtney (AKA Jesse Woodson James ?)

This page designed and maintained by Diann Tooley

While doing research on my family and other families connected, I became fascinated with the story about James L. Courtney possibly being Jesse Woodson James, The Outlaw.  Decide for yourself as I have provided links to online resources and stories.  Let me know what you think.  As I calculated it, Betty and I are 3rd half cousins, once removed.  I am proud to be related to her.

Betty Dorsett Duke has been researching what she believes that James L. Courtney and Jesse James are the same person.

Believe In Betty - Can't buy her book, Jesse James Lived And Died In Texas - Out of stock at Amazon - Darn!!!  Be aware I found the book for sale online but found some hefty prices for it.  Betty says this book will be reprinted before Christmas 2007.  Visit her website where she will advertise when this re-print is available.

Being that the possibility exists that James L. Courtney is Jesse Woodson James, I will provide the Courtney (Haun) family tree and link you to the Jesse James family trees available online, as researched by others.

Mary "Polly" Poor married to John M. James was Jesse Woodson James grandmother.  My ex-husband's half uncle is related to this Poor(e) family.  My ex-husband's grandmother was Mattie James who married Henry Poore.  I am trying to make the James and Poore connections.

13. Stephen J. "Andrew Jackson" (HAUN)3 COURTNEY (George Washington2, James1) was born Oct 01, 1822 in Greene Co., TN, and died Nov 15, 1882 in Parkerville, Morris Co., KS.

She was born Sep 29, 1821 in Jefferson Co., TN, and died Jan 08, 1917 in Parkerville, Morris Co., KS.

Notes for Stephen J. "Andrew Jackson" (HAUN) COURTNEY:

The death of Rev. Andrew J. Haun was announced last week. Mr. haun was an old resident of the county and we have endeavored to secure material for a suitable obituary.

Andrew J. Haun was born in Green county, Tennessee, November 13, 1882.[obvious newspaper error, as this is the death date. He was born October 1, 1822.] His home was there until his marriage, which took place December 23, 1845 when he was untied with Miss Dinah D. Andrews, at the home of her parents in Jefferson county, Tennessee, Rev. Wm. Senter performing the ceremony.

In the fall of 1852, he professed religion, and soon after removed to Johnson county Missouri, where he united with the Methodist church. Soon after he was licensed as a local preacher and aboded there until after the war, and labored there until the end of the war.

In the fall of 1864, he removed to Kansas, where he has resided continually since that time. He was well-known and highly esteemed by his neighbors, and had a large circle of friends.

Shortly before he was taken with his last illness, Mr. Haun had been on a visit to friends in Missouri and Texas. He returned home October 15 and a few days was taken sick with bilious fever. His sickness was not deemed serious and he was soon again attending to his farm duties. On the 30th of October he suffered a relapse, and his strength failed slowly from that time until his demise. He was conscious to the last, and frequently had friends sing and pray at his bedside. His death was painless.

Funeral services were conducted at the Methodist church at Parkerville, and his remains were interred in the Methodist cemetery.

Old settlers, especially, will regret Mr. Haun's death. To them he was well-known as a citizen and as a preacher.To bereaved family and friends, the REPUBLICAN would extend condolence and sympathy

 

Stephen Courtney at some point, changed his name to Andrew Jackson Haun.

Notes for Diannah Dorthulla ANDRUSS:

Dianna Dorthulla Andruss Courtney-Haun

Dianna was born September 29, 1822 [sic], in Tennessee. She married Stephen Courtney (later known as Andrew Jackson Haun) on December 23, 1845. They lived in Tennessee north of Knoxville for a few years, and in 1852 they moved to Johnson Co. MO. During the Civil War residents of that area were in jeopardy from raiders and told to move into Kansas for safety. Dianna and family fled in 1864 to Olathe, Johnson Co. KS, and Stephen served a stint in the Missouri Militia. They also lived in Miami Co.

Their son, James Courtney, served the Union Army (age 18) but when the War ended and he had mop up duty he deserted and came home. (He later left home and went to Texas and raised a family.) This desertion, the only reason the family can figure out, caused the family so much shame that they changed their name to Haun and moved to the interior of Kansas in Morris Co. Haun Creek in the area was named for them.

Stephen was a preacher. Dianna lived to be 95 and repapered her house by herself at age 90+. She and her husband are buried at Parkerville KS.

Generation No. 4

34. James Lafayette4 COURTNEY (Stephen J. "Andrew Jackson" (HAUN)3, George Washington2, James1) was born Oct 31, 1846 in Lick Creek, Hamblen Co., TN (or Russellville), and died Apr 14, 1943 in Falls Co., TX. He married Mary Ellen BARRON Oct 30, 1871 in Waco, McLennan Co., TX Thomas H. Barron's residence, daughter of Thomas BARRON and Mary SHELTON. She was born Oct 19, 1854 in Waco, McLennan Co., TX, and died Oct 21, 1910 in Blevins, Falls Co., TX.

Notes for James Lafayette COURTNEY:

James Courtney, served the Union Army (age 18) but when the War ended and he had mop up duty he deserted and came home. (He later left home and went to Texas and raised a family.) This desertion, the only reason the family can figure out, caused the family so much shame that they changed their name to Haun and moved to the interior of Kansas in Morris Co. Haun Creek in the area was named for them.

J. L. Courtney's Certificate of War Service in the Union army records him as being 5 feet 10 inches tall with dark hair. Per Betty Duke, ancestor of J. L. Courtney had sandy brown hair and was 6 feet 4 inches tall. Jesse James was reported to have been between 5 foot 9 inches to 5 foot 11 inches tall. In J. L. Courtney's diary, he signed his name J. James several times.

Courtney rode up to the Barron ranch with the saddlebags of his horse, and the horse he was leading, full of gold. He purchased a 160-acre tract of farmland from Barron with the gold, and throughout the course of his life, he bought every new piece of farm equipment that came onto the market, paying for them with cash. As each of the children married, he paid cash for farms to give them a good start in life. It is known that Jesse James trusted no one, and with all the robberies attributed to him, he must have been a rich man. There is talk to this day in the Blevins area about the gold and silver Courtney buried in different places. In the front yard alone, at least two gallon jars of money were unearthed by his children, and he kept five-gallon buckets full of silver dollars sitting around the house. More than $50,000 in cash was found in one of his trunks. There is no way to explain how a man who was supposed to be an ordinary farmer was able to amass that amount of money from a 160-acre farm…unless he really was Jesse James, that is.

There really was a James L. Courtney who did serve in the Union Army as a bugler in Co. M under Captain Oscar Smith. This Courtney enlisted on 14 January 1864 in Warrensburg, Missouri, at the age of eighteen and is described as "five feet ten inches tall with dark hair and blue eyes" only the man buried in Blevins was six feet four inches tall, and it is not likely he grew six additional inches after reaching his maturity. Bugler Courtney is listed as deserting at Columbus, North Carolina, on 21 August 1865, but it is Duke’s theory that he was killed in that battle and not reported because his personal effects went missing. It was common practice for the Confederates to search the uniforms of the dead in order to identify them, and she thinks this could have been one way for Jesse to assume the identity of the real James L. Courtney. Whatever the case, the Union Courtney is clearly not the same Courtney as Duke’s great-grandfather, who used this bugler’s name and service record to obtain a pension.

Census records and other documents indicate that the real James L. Courtney changed his name to James L. Haun sometime between 1865 and 1870. In 1865, he was living with his parents, Stephen and Dianah Courtney, in Miami County, Kansas. But by 1870, the Courtney family had become the Andrew Jackson Haun family. I believe that when James L. Courtney took the alias James L. Haun, Jesse James took the alias James L. Courtney.
