Birth: Jan. 12, 1874
Oklahoma, USA
Death: Nov. 29, 1913
Copperton
Salt Lake County
Utah, USA

Deputy James Douglas Hulsey was born January 12, 1874, to Charles and Pelina Stacey Hulsey, in Oklahoma Indian Territory. Raised in Colorado, he worked as a miner before coming to Utah and settling in Bingham Canyon.
A bachelor and respected memeber of the community, Hulsey worked as a barber, bartender and was a memeber of the Bingham Canyon volunteer fire department.
On November 21, 1913, Hulsey volunteered as a posse member to search for murderer of Bingham City Marshal William Grand and Salt Lake County deputies Otto Witbeck and Nephi Jensen. Hulsey's tracking skills were such that he followed the killer back to the Utah-Apex mine.
Hulsey was appointed to replace Otto Witbeck by Salt Lake County Sheriff Andrew Smith. However, before this could be confirmed by county commissioners, Hulsey was the next officer to fall.
On the afternoon of November 29, Hulsey and posse memeber Vaso Mandarich were engaged in operation to force the killer from the mine when they are ambushed and killed.
Deputy James D. Hulsey 39, was laid to rest in Bingham Cemetery by comrades and friends.
