Officers and Directors

The FOTJF Board exists to assist the entire organization & all of its members. We are interested in promoting research & an understanding of History of the 1800s in general, the Civil War & the part that it played in the lives of everyone who lived through those tough times. We also want you to know more about Jesse James, his family & associates, & perhaps understand why the man was who he was. The FOTJF is here to assist you in your search for history, its meaning & the significance that this colorful period of history has had on so many to this day. 

The Board of the FOTJF meets quaterly.
