Just as in the history of his brother Robert, in 1850 James and his family were farming in Newberry Co., SC. He lived next to his brother Robert, also farming. Sometime between 1853 and 1860, James and his family moved to Columbia Co., FL. His brother Robert and his sister Viney also moved to nearby farms in Columbia Co. Henry was born in SC, and Oscar and the rest were born in FL.

In 1863, he enlisted in the Confederate Army, and was a corporal. During the war he was wounded two times and was taken prisioner during the final days as Lee’s army was retreating toward Appomatox Court House. He was held at Newport News, VA and paroled a month later. Henry also served in the Confederate Army in the Home Guards.

James lived in Columbia Co. until his death in 1903. Emily died in 1927 and is buried beside him at the Pleasant Grove Cemetery.
