Death: Oct. 6, 1911

Union County

After his father's death, James came to America at age five and settled in Freeport, Illinois. During the Civil War, he served with the U. S. Cavalry. He was taken prisoner by the Confederates and spent seven days at Libby prison. He married Johanna "Hannah" Laine on November 22, 1870. For a time, he and his wife lived in a dogout in Hand County, Dakota Territory and endured hardships. In September of 1897, they moved to Beresford, SD. He and his wife had eight kids.

On the day of his death, James told his wife and son that he felt fine. After a light breakfast, he was about to start his morning prayers when he died suddenly, shortly after eight in the morning.
