Died at age 87 yrs, 7 months and 29 days.
His parents were Rev. Jacob W. Darling (1800-1868) and Mary (Buffington) Darling.
He studied at Cortland Academy, Homer, N.Y., and at the Biblical School at Whitestown, a Free Will Baptist institution. His father was also a FWB minister, having died in Eleroy, Ill.

James' life was consecrated to God in 1848, and the same year license to preach was granted. He was ordained a Free Will Baptist minister by Rev. R. Ide and others, Sept. 20, 1853. After ministering to the Spafford and Summerhill churches, N.Y., he moved to Michigan, where the remainder of his ministry, except three years at Prairie Centre and Homer, Ill., has been spent. He has ministered to the Summerville, Paw Paw, Waverly, Oshtemo, Gliddengurg, Arlington, Gobleville, Porter and Ortonville churches, enjoying revivals in them all. He has (by 1889) organized three churches and baptized over one hundred converts. On March 26, 1851, he was married to Mary M. French, and has three children, three having died.
Mary died sometime after 1890, and he married Lavella (or Lovenel) in 1894, and had a son, Jacob W, 2 yrs in the 1900 census.
