    James L. Booth was employed as a messenger with the Western Union in the 1920 census. He was only 13 years old at the time.

    At the time of the 1930 census, James was married to Lucille and was living in Butte, Silver Bow County, Montana. He was a miner in the copper mines. They had been married for about four years and had no children at the time. A postcard in my Grandmother Wheeler's possessions was from Jimmy Booth to his mother, C. A. Booth of Havre, Montana, and described his efforts to get settled in Butte. He continued to live in Butte until about 1947, when he moved back to Havre.

    According to the 1926-27 Butte City Directory, James was a miner in the Leonard Mine and was living at 11 E. Mercury. In 1942 and 1945, James and Lucille were living at 1018 E. Galena in Butte and James was still working as a miner.

    At the time of his death, he was the owner of a tavern in Havre, Montana. He was divorced. He lived at 205 6th Ave. West. (The informant on the death certificate was Mrs. Fred Guenser.)
