James Pew was born in Coshocton county, Ohio, July 10, 1859. When a small boy he went with his parents to Watseka, Illinois, where he grew to manhood. Here he was married to Miss Laura Isabel Green, December 13, 1882.

The young couple made their home in Iroquois county, Illinois, until the year 1899, when they moved to Marion county, Kansas. After a residence there eight years they purchased a farm south of Harrisonville, Missouri, and lived there one year. They then lived in Harrisonville several years.
