      "Birth date also recorded as 3 Feb 1868. James was 39 at death, and had 6 children. His son, Ben, gave information about him in a personal interview in Marshall, IL in 1981. Genealogical Library in Marshall, IL, had the record for father and mother and Alta May. It said, "3 graves with identical flowers and no markers." These would have been Hilda Faye, Alta Mae and Hester Ethel, three of James's children. !His son, Ben, may have been instrumental in seeing that a tombstone was erected for John McNair Carpenter and Phebe Ellen Griffing, parents of James. When he was interviewed in 1981, he was told no tombstone could be found for John or Phebe, and a few years later a large new stone is in the cemetery close to James".
