James Wilson Bills was born 23 November 1846 to Mary Jane Horton and Lafayette Bills. James Wilson was a farmer, and an Assistant Jailer. It is believed he married Sarah Ellen "Ella" Moore, though she does not appear with him on any census. They had four children; Guy, James McCarthy, Horton, and Stella. It seems Ella passed away before 1900, as there is no record of her after the birth of her last child Stella in 1893. In 1900, James Wilson lived in Ruddles Mills, Bourbon County, KY with his two older children, Guy and James M. His two younger children, Horton and Stella, were in Christian Church Orphans Home in Louisville, Jefferson County, KY. This is further proof that Ella probably passed away before 1900.

James Wilson passed away on Jan 17, 1916 in Connersville, Harrison Co., KY. He died from tuberculosis. He was laid to rest in Jeffersonville Cemetery in Bourbon, Co., KY. It is unknown where Sarah Ellen "Ella" Moore Bills is buried.
