Moved as a child with his family to Kilsyth parish, Stirlingshire where he married Margaret Brash in August, 1819. Having borne 8 children, Margaret died in Scotland in 1852.
In 1854, the widower James and most of his adult children emigrated to Kent county, Ontario, Canada where he died in Thamesville in 1866.
