    Notes 
    • James was commonly known as King Hedley. His interesting and varied life has been documented by Helen Connell, so just the essentials are shown here.

      His first marriage took place in May 1880 in Eureka, Nevada, to Lizzie McMARTIN. It's unclear what became of Lizzie but the marriage didn't last long. In 1884 King married the actress Eleanor Rodgers (aka Eleanor Moretti). That marriage didn't last long either, ending some time before 1901, by which time King was in London (see census below). King married again in 1902, Mary Harris EDMONDS and appeared with her in the 1911 census.
