James was buried either in the Wheeler Cemetery or a small unknown cemetery (maybe Harlan Cemetery). In 1990, this tombstone along with the one for Catharine Wheeler and Martha Harlan Wheeler were sitting on Dick Spencer's front porch. Dick lives on a farm next to the Wheeler Cemetery in Macoupin County, IL.

{The book "History and Genealogy of the Harldn Family", by Alpheus H. Harlan, page 650 states he was born February 29, 1800 and he died February 29, 1852 and is buried "in Gillespie.: If his birth date is calculated from his tombstone it matches the birth date given in the book.}
