Jim was a life-long Lynnville-area Windham Township farmer. He was very active in the local Liberal political party, serving as vice-president of North Norfolk Liberals in 1901. He was so modest he did not have his portrait taken. When the Reformer wanted to publish his photo with the news of his death the best the family could provide was taken on his parents' lawn in Port Dover over a decade before. After Jim died, Emory moved to Plainfield, New Jersey where she helped raise her son Arthur's daughters.
