His gravestone says that he died on October 3, 1889 and was 17 yrs., 11 mo., and 3 days old. If that is accurate, James was born around November 11, 1871.

The only census record that James appears in is the 1880 census. He was 8 years old when the census was taken in June 1880 and was living with his family in Clinton County, Ohio.
