You might be able to help one the other Caperton relatives. I had been working on ancestry.com and posted there with the same question. I got a response from him, but they didn't have the information you had for me. They do have a problem that I thought you might be able to help with.
Here it is: "I was trying to trace my James Caperton (b. 1871 Texas) and just could not find any more information. James lived near Grayson, and died in Dallas. His children were named, Archibald Woodie, Wallace Gary, Annie May, Clyde and Robert. At some point James said his father was from Mississippi, but later just said USA. Since I was stuck, I started putting any Caperton's with similar first names in my tree, but they do not actually connect to anyone in my family at this point." Could the James he's looking for be your James? If not, do you know how he would find the information? Thanks.

Having a look into the archives, I see there is a James W. Woodie Caperton born 25 Sept 1871. According to his Death Certificate he died 27 April 1954 in Dallas Texas which I believe meets the specs you gave. The Certificate lists a James Caperton as his father and both James' father and son as born in Texas, though no further info is given. The mothers name is listed as unknown.
Hope this helps!
