FAMOUS JAMESES
(UPDATED WEEKLY)

Each week, we highlight a historic or famous person named James. This week's famous James is:

James Forten (born September 2, 1766 - died March 4, 1842) Black entrepreneur, social leader. Born of free African-American parents in Philadelphia. Quit school at age 15 to serve as a powder boy aboard the privateer Royal Louis during the American Revolution; he was captured by the British and held prisoner for seven months. He eventually spent a year in England where he was introduced to abolitionist philosophy. Upon returning to America he was apprenticed to a sailmaker; by 1786 he was foreman, in 1798 he became the company's owner, and in 1832 he employed 40 workers (black and white). Forten was active in the abolitionist movement and in the American Anti-Slavery Society; he was president and founder of the American Moral Reform Society. He was a strong opponent of northern implementation of the Fugitive Slave Act of 1793.

The name "James" is the English equivalent of Jacob; the first Jacob in the Bible was the patriarch of the 12 tribes of Israel. "James" is consistently among the most popular names for boys in the U.S.

Plural form of James: According to the Carnegie Mellon Style Guide, "Form plurals of family names that end in 's' by adding 'es.'  Right: The Jameses live in Edgewood."  See also StackExchange.com.
