He was killed 13 September 1833 by Drury Hafford. Drury and his brother William got into an argument with James Stanley while doing volunteer work on a road in Hopkins County, Drury struck James with a grubbing hoe, and James died twenty minutes later, See Criminal Case 701 for details. Drury and William left the state and ended up in Texas where they were joined later by their parents. Drury changed his name to "Samuel Pearce."
