James was buried in Block 9, Section 19, Space 1. in the Banning Cemetery. Grand son, Lauin always thought that James' name was Taylor until he died. He remembers him as a very quiet man that ate every meal with a knife, even the peas off his plate. He had a handlebar mustache. He told Lauin he learned to eat with a knife because he spent so much time on the range as a young man and that was the only thing he had to eat with out there on the range. Lauin lived with his grandfather Taylor and grandmother Susan (Suzzie) for a year after Oscar died. Taylor became very ill and was rushed to the hospital to have surgery. When Taylor came home he still was very sick and had a tube coming out of his stomach. Susan took care of Taylor and nursed him back to health. Iva returned to Banning and Lauin then lived with his mother two houses away from his Grandfather and Grandmotherfor about a year.
