David belasco was not born in 1859 as given in this book, David James was not his uncle, and David James was not born in 1839. The date of David James birth should be 25 Jan 1835 as given in the book "Belasco from Boxing to Theatre and Film", which is the only full biography. David Belasco was born in 1854 when his parents arrived in San Francisco. The date 1853 which is often quoted is also wrong. See "Belasco from Boxing to Theatre and Film", for the correct details.
