Notes:  James Douglas Carr was born 11 Oct 1914 in Alhambra, Los Angeles, California.  His parents were Vernon Carr and Lillian Olson, who were fruit ranchers.  He had an older sister Evelyn, born in 1910 in Alhambra.  In 1917 when his father registered for the World War draft, the family was living at 1711 W. Broadway in Glendale, California.  His younger brother was born in Feb 1919.  In the 1920 USA census his family was living in Covina, California in 1920.

By the 1930 USA census, Jim's family was living in Littlerock, out in the Antelope Valley near Palmdale.  Here they established a pear and peach ranch in the dessert.

Jim married Claudine Clarke, and they had one son, Allan James,born 25 Sep 1937.  In the 1940 USA census, Jim and Claudine were living on 80th Street, in Littlerock, California.  Their son, Allan was 2 years old.  Jim was a ranch hand, presumably for his parents fruit ranch, and they were renting for $15. per month.  Jim had a high school education.

According to passenger lists, a James Carr, born about 1914, sailed aboard the S.S. Thomas Paine from Los Angeles, California to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, via New York, and was a seaman discharged from the ship on 10 Jan 1944.

The 1946 and 1948 voter registration records show Jim and Claudine registered at Sec. 14, T5N, R11W.  This was the same place as his parents, presumably the Carr fruit ranch.  In 1952, Claudine is not registered at this address.  According to family reports, they divorced, and she died shortly thereafter.

According to family sources,Jim married two more times, and had two additional children.  He lived in Las Vegas for a while, and survived surgery for lung cancer.  He returned to live in the Littlerock area.
