During the Civil War, James served as a Private in Company F, 6th Mississippi Infantry Regiment. He was captured 4 July 1863 at Vicksburg MS & paroled. Sometime before 1870 he & his family moved to East Carroll Parish & farmed there on Hanna's Plantation(named Edgewood). He died sometime before 1880 & probably is buried there. Virginia was still living there in 1880, but in 1900 she lived with her daughter Nancy in Ashley County Arkansas. She died between 1900 and 1910 but the location is unknown. She may be buried with her husband in East Carroll Parish LA.
