Birth: 1835
Fulton County
Georgia, USA
Death: Jan. 18, 1887
New Hanover County
North Carolina, USA

Aged 52
Capt. Bagley had been part owner of the steamer RIVER QUEEN which was destroyed during the Great Fire of Wilmington (Feb. 1886). After the Fire, he sold his other boat, the J.C. STEWART (also the name of his partner), and took it up (the Ocmulgee River) to it's new owners in Hawkinsville, GA in December 1886. It was probably during this time that he contracted malaria, from which he died about a month later. His new boat, the CAPE FEAR was completed in the summer of 1886.

Mr. James G. Bagley died last night at his residence in this city, from an attack of malarial fever, supposed to have been contracted in Florida, from whence he returned to Wilmington about a week ago. Mr. Bagley had been engaged in the steamboat business on the Cape Fear for several years, being the owner of the steamer River Queen, destroyed by fire in March last, and part owner of the steamer J. C. Stewart, which ran on the river between Wilmington and Fayetteville until a few months ago when the boat was sold to parties in Georgia or Florida. The funeral of deceased will take place at half past # o'clock this afternoon, from the Second Presbyterian church.
