James S. Roantree
Birth: 1835
Death: Feb. 24, 1873

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as First Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. His citation reads "On board the USS Oneida during action against rebel forts and gunboats and with the ram Tennessee in Mobile Bay, 5 August 1864. Despite damage to his ship and the loss of several men onboard as the enemy fire raked her decks and penetrated her boilers, Sgt. Roantree performed his duties with skill and courage throughout the furious battle which resulted in the surrender of the rebel ram Tennessee and in the damaging and destruction of batteries at Fort Morgan." (bio by: Don Morfe)
