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.

This is James' household in the 1830 US Census - he had to be at least 50 years old.
