Edmund James, one of the oldest & honored pioneers of Vermillion Co., who is now deceased, was born in the state of Virginia 5-30-1803, a son of Rev. Dr. Wm James. He became a resident of this county as early as 1822, when the principal inhabitants were Indians & wild animals. He settled in Helt Township when the surroundings country was nothing but a wilderness, & here he made his home until his death engaged in agricultural pursuits. He married 6-9-1822 to Miss Elizabeth Swank, a daughter of Jacob Swank, and to them were born 12 children, of whom 8 are still living at the present timeŚWilliam, Edmund, Joseph, Collon, Crews, Permelia, Mary & Lydia.
