Obituary

"Untitled," New York Evangelist, June 18, 1874, p. 5: 2.

Rev. James Miller McKim, whose name is prominently identified with the anti-slavery movement, died on Saturday morning, at his residence, Llewellyn Park, Orange, New Jersey. Mr. McKim was a native of Carlisle county, Penn., and having graduated at Dickinson College, entered the Presbyterian ministry, in which he was a zealous pastor for several years. His warm interest in the advancement of the anti-slavery movement caused him to resign his position in the Presbyterian Church, that he might devote all his time to this work. His labors commenced as lecturer, and afterward he occupied the position of Corresponding Secretary of the Pennsylvania  Anti-Slavery Society. After emancipation he still continued his efforts in behalf of the negro, and took a prominent part in the organization of the American Freedmen’s Aid Society. At the time of his death he had attained his sixty-fourth year.
