Frank James (1843-1915) lived in Nashville from 1877 to 1881 and went by the alias Ben J. Woodson. At one point, he resided at 814 Fatherland Street in what is now called East Nashville. While living in and around the city, Frank worked as a teamster, joined the Methodist Church and had a son with his wife, Annie. Frank lived as a humble citizen for a few years before his brother Jesse convinced him to return to the life of banditry. By the time he left Tennessee to return to Missouri, the legend of the James Brothers was well known.
