James died on 10 May 1907 at the age of 69. His obituary was written in the Taney County Republican:

"James Clark departed this life on Friday, and was buried at Helphrey on Sunday the 12th instant. A large number of relatives and friends were present. The casket was covered with a mass of beautiful flowers. Six old veterans of the Union army were the pallbearers who lovingly bore this old confederate to his last resting place, where he sleeps under the trees, waiting for the great reveille. There was no better soldier, citizen or neighbor, nor one more kind-hearted, honest, industrious or more loved and mourned than Mr. Clark"
