One family story about James' service was given by George Scott McGlaughlin, who said that his grandfather John McGlaughlin (through his father Andrew Jackson McGlaughlin) said that his father (James) was an aide to George Washington, and that he had had the honor of holding Washington's horse when Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown. His father and Washington were said to have been personal friends, both being from Virginia. James told Washington one day that he (Washington) was not properly guarded. Washington laughed and said that he was. That night, however, James stole into camp and took all the smoked tongue, which was the principal meat on the camp menu. A great commotion arose the next day, and James finally returned the meat and told Washington that it proved that he was not properly guarded. He (James) was made unofficial aide to Washington then and there.
