Birth: 1839
Georgia, USA
Death: Sep. 13, 1863
New Castle County
Delaware, USA

James and his brother, John S., were enlisted as privates 20 AUG 1861 at Watkinsville, Georgia by Capt. J. S. Vincent for 12 months. Their outfit, Capt. Hendon's Company Georgia Volunteers (Clarke County Rifles), was subsequently tendered to the CSA for service, thus becoming CO L 3rd GA VOL INF. Brother John was killed at Camp Advance, Fairfax Co., VA 20 JUN 1862 when, as the story goes, he was mistaken for the enemy while on picket duty and shot by a member of CO F. James was captured at Gettysburg 05 JULY 1863 and imprisoned at Ft. Delaware which is on Pea Patch Island in the Delaware River, New Castle Co., DE. He died of measles 13 SEP 1863 and was buried Finn's Point National Cemetery, Pennsville, Salem, NJ. There are no individual headstones. A monument with the names of the deceased may have his name as "Hardicreh" (not confirmed by personal inspection).

James & John were the sons of Elisha & Sarah (Willoughby) Hardigree. Elisha, Sarah, James & John were charter members of Chapel Christian Church, Winder, Barrow, Georgia founded in 1860.
