James Haltom
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1828
Death: 1885

He farmed $200 worth of land in Montgomery County, 1850. James received a grant of 100 acres on Dison's Creek there from the state on February 25, 1853. In 1856 he owned 256 acres. He was living in Montgomery County, in 1860, owning no slaves.

The Hulin family that James married into was firmly against the Civil War and specifically, against slavery. Several of the Hulin brothers were murdered by their neighbors in Montgomery County for refusing to serve in the Confederate army. One of James Haltom's sons, Elisha, died in the service of the Confederacy, while another, William P. Haltom, was pro-Union. A daughter, Rinda Haltom, got into trouble for helping conscientious objectors during the war. After the end of the Civil War, James owned 170 acres on Denson's Creek in Little River township (1876). James died February 18, 1885 in Montgomery County and was buried in the Haltom Cemetery with his two wives, Betsey and Sarah
