    Notes 
    • James and Julia settled on a farm in Buckingham Township, Quebec at the end of a concession road leading from the road between Buckingham and Mayo. In the 1901 Census, James is listed as occupying 300 acres on Lot 7, Range 7 and having 6 barns and outbuildings. As the family grew, it prospered. James acquired the adjacent farm. In the early 1900s,their land totalled approximately 500 acres. There were two barns, a stable for eight horses, a granary and a building to house farm implements. The farm also contained a quartz, spar and lead mine. (These minerals were in demand during the two world wars and the mine was operated by outsiders on a concession basis.)

      Son Joseph later occupied James' first farm and son Patrick later occupied the second farm.

      The access road from the highway is now named Chemin McClément and the immediate area has now been built up with expensive houses. During the last 25 years, part of the site of the original homestead was excavated for a gravel and sand pit.

      James is buried in St. Gregoire's cemetery in Buckingham, Quebec.
