Death

James died on December 11, 1843 in Orange County, New York, United States, aged 64.[5]

Note: The stone is a bit difficult to read so the death date might be off. The date of death has to be after 1830 (so his Findagrave memorial is wrong - it lists his DOD as 1813), since the 1830 census shows him still alive.
