James was the sixth child born to Henry Kirk Brainard and Andrea Smergel. James died as an infant. According to my grandmother, Grace Andrea Trimble, they had several babies that were stillborn or died shortly after birth. James was one of these infants. His grave is just to the right of his parents big headstone in Hopkins Cemetary.
