Tombstone indicates James' Civil War Unit was Co. B, 6th Enr MO Militia. The Civil War database indicates James was in several units, the last was the 16th Missouri Cavalry Regiment as a Captain.

James' death certificate indicated he died at 11 a.m. The place of burial was indicated as "Piland" Cemetery.

In 1882 James H and Emerine apparently borrowed $400 from their son John W. Sallee and put up their farm in Ozark Co. as surety for the loan.
