James was born in Wigtownshire, Scotland. He and brothers George W., William, John, Thomas Millar, all came to US one at a time in the decade preceeding the Civil War. Three of the brother were in the Illinois Volunteers and 2 survived. John and James wrote daily diaries which still exist. Both served in IL 10th Co.G. All the other brothers stayed in IL but James and wife Mary Ann moved to KS in 1870 and to OK soon after 1890. They lived next door to Mary Ann's daughter and son in law (Charles & Margaret C. Gokey). James was buried in the Gokey Family Cemetery in Jones, OK Co., OK.
