  • Notes 
    • James worked at Monroe Feed & Seed in Mt. Vernon, Indiana. He married the daughter of Adam and Melissa (Bigelow) Wilson.

      On the 1870 census James' age is given as 9 which would place his birth in about 1861. But another reference gives his birth as 1863.

      In 1880, he is listed on the census as an 18 year old farmer living with his parents in Black Township, Posey County, Indiana, and also in the household of his uncle, James M. Monroe as age 17.
