James A. Quander and Future Research

When discussing the life of James A. Quander it is important to note that there are many discrepancies in the historical documentation of his life and family. Even though the Quanders are one of the earliest documented African-American families it is worth noting that due to the size of the family, many of the family members' names repeat within the same generation. Because of this when the individual's names are not written in full, it is difficult to verify which Quander is in each document.  In order to better verify the presence of James A. Quander  within historical documents, one would need to verify through additional documentation which relative is being spoken of. This would then lead to more accurate information about the Quander family as well as a better idea of the life of James A. Quander.
