Birth: 1833
Death: May 10, 1864

According to different sources, James J. Manscill was born 1833 and died May 10th 1864, at the hands of Confederate Soldiers near Eastport, MS. His body was never found. Some sources indicate that his body was thrown into the Tennessee River.

His wife, Martha Jane Brown Manscill is buried in Old Manscill Cemetery, also once known as Hallmark Cemetery. There are no dates on her tombstone, but Archives indicate her pension was stopped upon her death on October 7, 1908.

James and Martha had 6 children: Pernecia, born 10-25-1850; Gabriel, born 1-20-1854; Green, born 12-6-1856; John, born 2-21-1859; Marion, no dates; James, born abt. 1833; Marion and James had died earlier.

A memorial tombstone was ordered for James by Olva Jones and placed alongside many of his relatives in Palmer Cemetery near Hamilton, Alabama. This location was chosen due to the difficulty in accessing Old Manscill Cemetery.
