In 1850, James was living in Washington Township, Hendricks County, Indiana. His wife was named Anna and she was also born in Kentucky. Their children were Lydia Ann (age 18), Thornton S. (15), John H. (13), Willis (8), Martha (7), Mary G. (6). Also living with them in 1850 was Henry Miller (age 71) who was probably Anna's father.

By 1860, James was widowed. He was still in Hendricks County. Still living with him were Thornton, John, Willis and Martha. Josephine (born about 1852) was the only additional child since the previous Census.
