At the Annual Conference held at Wesley Chapel, New Orleans, La., January 25, 1906; He said, “Boys if I never answer another roll call on earth I will answer in heaven.” He joined the Conference, January 1881, and served the following charges; Port Allen, Mt Carmel, Lake Providence, Clinton, Napoleonville, St. Paul, Shreveport. Six years Presiding Elder Shreveport District, Mt. Zion, New Orleans, Wesley Chapel, Baton Rouge. He leaves a wife and 4 children and a host of friends in the battle with Satan, the archenemy of our souls.
Bro. James won his way through at whatever task he undertook. He was full of patience and delighted to be so among the people. We have indeed lost an excellent and worthy brother. Your family his indeed lost a faithful and devoted provider.
