James William had enlisted as a Private in the Union Army, Company C., 50th Indiana Volunteers on September 10, 1861, during the American Civil War. He was only fifteen years, 10 months of age, but his enrollment papers claim he was eighteen years old. He eventually was promoted to Corporal on November 1, 1862. He was held early in the war in a field hospital with swamp fever at Cadron Mill, Arkansas. When he was released, he rejoined his unit but was taken prisoner on August 20, 1862, at Gallitan, Tennessee, by General Morgan. He was held three days and then paroled to Bowling Green, Kentucky, and Camp Chase, Ohio. He was never wounded although fighting in several major battles, including Nashville, Parkers Cross Roads, Gallitan, Little Rock, and Saline River. He was honorably discharged on January 5, 1865, at Indianapolis. James William was listed as head of household on the 1900 Census for Vienna Township, Scott County, Indiana. He and his wife became members of the Methodist Church there. He held the occupations of postmaster, farmer, and merchant of Vienna.
