This isn't James L. Courtney. The image is of Travis Barron. The person who claims it is James L. Courtney is a delusional woman in Texas who believes she is the great-granddaughter of Jesse James. She claims that the famous outlaw Jesse Woodson James did not die in 1882 as history records but faked his death and moved to Texas and lived under the name of James L. Courtney. There are valid images of James L. Courtney but this one is completely misidentifed.
I provided you a link with primary information. You can also contact Eric James who is a member of True West. It is not up to me to prove a negative, it is up to you to prove a positive. I see no proof from you other than you placed a "label" on this image. You state yourself that: "I admit that all the labels are not "accurate" because I find "as is" on the internet." Some proof Reverend.I await positive proof from you that this image is James L. Courtney. I also await proof from you that the famous outlaw Jesse Woodson James did not die in 1882 and lived on as James L. Courtney.
I also must take issue on the accuracy of some of the labels on Mr Chapman's pictures. I posted comments on a couple of them, with no response.
I would think if it is shown the label on a picture is incorrect, the poster would be happy to edited it and post the correct information.
Just this old cowboy's opinion, of course.
