I would love to know that story. All I know is Mary and one of the sons (either Finis or James) went to bring his body home and didn't make it due to a heavy storm.

Also, do you have any information about James prior to his death. I am having a tough time finding any information prior to his marriage to Mary in TN.

I've heard a story that his father (John?) and mother (Philadelphia?) died while he was very young and he lived with Waddell's in MS and that's how he met Mary.

I think they were living on Elam's farm in central AR when a battle broke out on Elam's farm and may have prompted James A. to join the Confederacy.

Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
