Birth: unknown
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Oct. 29, 1864
Sacramento County
California, USA

James was a member of Company B, Third Infantry. Having served nearly three years, he had returned from Salt Lake to be mustered out of service. He came into the city of Sacramento and became intoxicated, noisy, and troublesome. Consequently, he was placed in the guard house at Camp Union (training ground for California volunteers). Eventually he had to be gagged because of his loud behavior. After two or three hours, he was found to be in a dying condition, so the gag was removed but he died within 15 minutes. Cause of death was determined to be congestion of the brain super-induced by the excessive use of liquor. James was about 42 years of age.
