DR. JAMES HACKLEMAN was born on the 14th day of August 1799 in Abbeville District, S.C. When he was three years old, his father (Abraham Hackleman) emigrated to Georgetown, Ky., by packhorse, as it was then called, the only means of conveyance in those early times; and in the Spring of 1808, his father removed to Little Cedar Grove near Brookville, Franklin Co., Ind. Here the family were reared up in those Western wilds, inured to pioneer life.

He was married to Jane Blades on the 21st day of August 1817, and in the spring of 1821 he removed to Rush County and settled on Little Flat Rock Creek, four miles east of where the town of Rushville was afterward laid off. In March 1831, he removed to Connersville, Fayette county. Here he studied medicine and became a practicing physician.

On the 16th day of Ocotber 1835, he lost his companion. She had been in poor health for two or three years previous to her death. In the fall of that same year, he removed to Wabash, Wabash County, and was one of its first settlers. He immediately went into the practice of medicine; the country was then sparsely settled and his practice extended over a wide extent of territory, and at some seaons of the year over roads almost impassable, which required a vast deal of labor and hardships to the medical profession.

On the 22nd day of August 1836, he was married to Amelia Willey. He continued to reside in Wabash until December 1854, when he removed to Knightstown, where he resided until the spring of 1864, when he concluded to come back to Wabash and spend the remainder of his days. He arrived here on the 1st day of April, and on the evening of the 4th he was taken with very sore throat, which continued to increase so that he could not swallow anything for eight days and nights, and sleeping but very little during that time. This so exhausted him that he was unable to take sufficient nourishment to survive the shock, but gradually became more exhausted until that once robust and athletic frame became cold in death.

He became a member of the Baptist Church at Little Cedar Grove on the first Sabbath in March 1818, and continued through life a member of the Baptist profession. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity. He served the people as Justice of the Peace in Rush and Fayette Counties. He was Judge of the Probate Court of Wabash County from 1838 to 1845. He was a man of remarkably sound constitution, capable of enduring great fatigue and exposure to which his profession often subjected him; temperate in his habits, never using any intoxicating liquors.

He was a cousin to the late P.A. Hackleman. He died on Wednesday, the 27th day of April, 1864 at 2 o'clock P.M., and his remains were deposited in the New Cemetery at Wabash in the presence of a great number of his former friends and acquaintances.
