Uncle Lakin was the third child of Claude E. Milam Sr and Girtha Jane Fisher Milam. These are the pictures of James Lakin Milam which I been able to acquire.
Earliest Photo I have of Uncle Lakin.

Lakin was said to be an ace pitcher and pro material.

Claude and Girtha's 50th Wedding Anniversary in August 1961. Seated in front are Girtha and Claude looking very pleased as Uncle Lakin spoke to them. Standing from the left are Uncle Lakin's wife, Aunt Clara, Uncle Dix's wife, Aunt Helen, Freer's wife, Christine, and Aunt Martha's husband, "Butch" Singleton. Everyone liked Uncle Lakin and you can see that Christine is tickled as well. This photo was taken only two months before Granddad Claude Milam died of leukemia. August 1961
