The family lived in Amanda, Fairfield, Ohio at the time of James birth and continued to live there for his early childhood years. Sometime between 1860 and 1870 the family moved. The 1860 Census still shows them living in Ohio. The 1870 census shows them living in Andrew County, Missouri which is where James spent his teenage and young adult years helping out on the family farm.

On December 9, 1889 he married Hattie Borchers at the Parsonage in Savannah, Missouri. Hattie was a Borchers as well but they were not related. Two children would come out of their union, Earl Conrad Borchers and Carol Ralph Borchers.
