He lived at Hachednize Cottages with his family. When his son Thomas, who lived in Glasgow lost his wife to TB, James found Thomas also had TB and so he brought him back to his small family home in Coldstream along with Thomas's children, James (who is buried with his parents) and Annie. Thomas died a few months later and his parents, Aunts and Uncles, brought Thomas and Annie up".
