Birth: 1851
Death: 1931

The Forrest City Times' Art Souvenir-1905-Page 56:James DeRossitt was born in the Lone Star state in 1853. He is the eldest son of Tolbert and Medussa DeRossitt, who were pioneers of that country. He later moved to Kentucky, and thence in 1874 to Arkansas, and located in St.Francis basin. He very patriotically believes the latter act to have been the greatest event in his life. Mr.DeRossitt is a farmer by occupation, and has made a success at his chosen calling. Note from descendent, Frank and James had a sister, named Emily, who married Louis Powell Merritt, and they are buried in Hughes Cemetery, St.Francis County.
