James was on his way to visit his brother Walter who was on his death bed. James was walking along Manchester Road near their farms and a car hit him. His skull was fractured.
His brother Walter was not told that James died, and Walter died the next day. There was a double funeral for the two brothers.
James and Anna had one son, James Michael Butler.
