General Notes: "From Past and Present of Prince Edward Island, published by B.F. Bowen and Co. of Charlottetown about 1907:

"T.C. James, Manager of the Anglo-American Telegraph Company's lines in Prince Edward Island, with headquarters at Charlottetown, was born at Halifax, Nova Scotia, in October, 1946, and is the son of T.C. and Jane (West) James, the former a native of County Carlow, Ireland, and the latter of Fredericton, N.B.. In young manhood the father came to Halifax and engaged in business, but in 1849 he went to St. John's Newfoundland, and was there engaged in business up to the time of his death in 1854. Of his seven children, the subject of this sketch is the youngest. The latter attended the public schools and the Episcopal College at St. John's, after which he taught school in that city for two and a half years. At the age of nineteen years he went to Halifax, N.S., where he held a position in the office of W.P. West and Co.. In the summer of 1866 he returned to Newfoundland and in September of the same year he accepted a position with the New York, Newfoundland, and London Telegraph Co. at St. John's, this being at a time when the famous Alex M. Mckay was is charge. In 1869 Mr. James was sent to Port Hastings, Cape Breton, and in December 1879, was transferred to New York, where he was located in the office of the late Cyrus Field. In June 1881, he returned to Newfoundland and in September of the same year he was appointed to take charge of the Prince Edward Island lines with headquarters at Charlottetown, which responsible position he has since retained, his long retention being a marked testimonial to his efficiency and faithfulness.

Mr. James has twice been married. In October 1871, he was married to Miss Sophia McKeen, a daughter of the late James McKeen of Port Hastings, Cape Breton, and to them were born two children, T.C., now in Seattle, and Margaret, who is engaged in teaching school in Charlottetown. Mrs. James died in 1879, and in 1881, Mr. James married Miss Hales, a native of Charlottetown and a daughter of F.W. Hales of the Charlottetown Steam Navigation Co. They are the parents of two daughters. In religion, Mr. James is a member of the Presbyterian Church, of which he is an elder and in which he takes an active and influential interest. Because of his genuine worth and genial disposition, Mr. James has many warm friends on the Island.
