James Henry served in the Civil War as a Union soldier. He enlisted on 13 Jan 1864 in Omaha, Nebraska. He served in Company E. 1st Regiment of Nebraska Calvery Volunteers as a 2nd Sgt. He was discharged at Lincoln, Nebraska 15 Apr. 1865. He lived most of his life at Tremont, Missouri, just south of Bolivar, Missouri(Tremont later became known as Karlin, Missouri). He married Cordelia Catherine Slagle 15 Mar 1855 in Polk County, Missouri. They had 12 Children 10 of which lived to be adults. James was a active member of the Slagle Creek Baptist Church were he served as a elder. After the death of Cordelia he married Mrs. Ida U. Brown, 3 Apr 1894 and divorced Oct 19, 1896. James was in ill health and went to live with his great nephew Seigel Derossett and his wife Margaret "Kit" (mn Wakefield). Seigel was the grandson of Lewis Derosset who was James older brother. He first lived with them in Fairplay, Missouri, then Seigel moved to Cherokee, OK and James went with them. He lived there until he died 3 Mar 1914 of complications of renal problems. He is buried in Auburn Cemetery, Yewed, OK. Yewed was a small town just outside of Cherokee, OK. I believe that Seigel was an Indian agent in OK. because of stories told to me by my father who went to OK as a boy to vist his grandfather.
