The Evening Star, October 29, 1874
Death of James H. Causten, A venerable and much respected citizen, Mr. James H. Causten, died last night, in the 87th year of his age. Mr. Causten was born in Baltimore, September 26, 1788, and has been a resident of the
District for the forty-two years past. He was consul for the republics of Chili and Equador for a considerable period, and has been widely known for many years as the agent for the French Spoliation Claims," the payment of which he urged with eloquence and indifatigable energy, but
which, just as they undoubtedly are, the country never found it convenient to pay, and he died without seeing the fruition of his long labor. Mr. Causten served as a soldier in the war of 1812, and he was one of the staunchest Union men in feeling during the late rebellion. His memory will be held in respect by all who knew him. James Hyman Causten died October 28, 1874, at his town house, 1428 F Street northwest. He was 86 years and one month old and had lived in the District for the past 42 years.
