-Born in New Hampshire to John and Susannah Dinsmore, James moved to Natchez, Mississippi,​ following his graduation from Dartmouth. In 1828, he purchased half a sugar cane and cotton plantation in Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana. One year later, at the advanced age of thirty-eight,​ he traveled to Burlington, New Jersey, to marry Martha Macomb. The sale of the plantation and aportion ​fo the enslaved people who worked in the fields in 1842, allowed James to move to Kentucky where he began raising grapes and sheep on his "​Arcadian"​ farm near his Uncle Silas. His interests were vast as one can see from his library in the main house. He died in 1872 and was buried on Christmas Eve.  +Born in New Hampshire to John and Susannah Dinsmore, James moved to Natchez, Mississippi,​ following his graduation from Dartmouth.
