The disciples James and John were the sons of Zebedee.

I had read in some places that their mother was Salome.  I have also heard that she was either the sister of the Theotokos or the daughter of St. Joseph.

In either case, would that not make James and John some relation Christ's?

Yes. Jesus was their uncle.
That's what I was thinking.  I just wanted to see if I was confusing people or not.
