Biography

James was born in Tennessee in 1814 to William W Ogilvie and Margaret Blanton. His father was a wealthy farm and slave owner. Census records through 1830 show that James lived at home in Tennessee. The 1840 Census is inconclusive, as it shows a male his age which could be either him or his brother George. It's not clear when James moved to Arkansas, but his father remained in Tennessee.

James married at least twice, the first known marriage at age 34. She died three days after giving birth to their son James. He remarried two years later and had children with her as well. James passed away in 1864 at 49 years old.
