From "Notable Men of Alabama" Vol I, 1904 (reprinted 1976) Lib.of Congress Cat #:75-45385: "He learned to use the rifle and to use it well. When a boy he was known to be an early riser, and while his mother prepared the morning meal "Jim" was sent to drive up the calves that had been grazing through the night. Often upon his return he brought with him the fruits of his young marksmanship in the form of a fat, juicy venison which, of course, added very materially to the pleasures of the morning's meal. He was not selfish in his nature, but demonstrated his spirit of boyish generosity by dividing the fruits of the hunt with his white friends and with the Indians, whom he had made friendly by his kindly bearing toward them."
"He was a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopol Church South."

"He was a member of Company A, of the Second Alabama Cavalry, to which cause he was faithful until the surrender of General Lee. Returning home in the spring of 1865, he found himself financially broken up, with nothing to begin life anew with, save a sound body and an exhaustless store of energy. To him were born a family of sixteen children, eleven of whom are now living (1904.)"
