In 1861, in Plymouth, Cornwall, he married Margery Taylor Couch. She was born on September 29, 1840, in Launceston, Cornwall.

Senator J. H. King Dies in Ottawa, The Ottawa Journal, July 14, 1955, page 7: “By The Canadian Press. Senator James H. King, of Vancouver, former Senate Speaker, died in Ottawa Civic Hospital at 12.05 a.m. EDT today. He was 82. Senator King was admitted to hospital June 20 with a heart condition. He later contracted pneumonia. He had lapsed Into unconsciousness five days ago and was placed In an oxygen tent. Hospital authorities said yesterday that he was no longer taking oxygen, out that his condition was still seriously ill. He passed away quietly just after the turn of midnight. His death reduces the Liberal standing In the Senate to 72 and Increases the number of vacant seats to 23. Conservatives hold the other seven of the Chamber’s 102-seats. Senator James Horace King was the first doctor to reach Frank, Alta., after Turtle Mountain collapsed in 1903 and killed 68 sleeping villagers. He may have been the model for Ralph Connor’s novel, “The Doctor”. His medical practice made him a beloved figure In Southwestern British Columbia and the Crowsnest Pass. But increasing activity in public affairs caused him to retire from active practice in the 1920’s. His political career took him to the British Columbia Legislature, -the House of Commons and the Senate. He held Cabinet posts in all three and served a four-year term as Speaker of the Upper Chamber. He was a robust man with a friendly disposition and a kindly manner. Born at Chipman, NB, January 18, 1873, he practised medicine both In the Maritimes and BC. He studied at McGill University and In Europe. But BC was the scene of his greatest activity. As a doctor he made a great impression in Cranbrook, BC, and through the Crowsnest while surgeon for the Canadian Pacific Railway. Connor never confirmed or denied the widely-held belief among Senator King’s friends and former patients that he was the hero of “The Doctor”, published in 1908. Closely allied with his medical work was his lifelong Interest in the St. John Ambulance Association which he founded In BC. He became a Knight of Grace of the Venerable Order. SENATOR J. H. KING, of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem. Senator King’s political career began In 1903. He was a member of the BC Legislature from 1903-09 and from 1918-22 and was provincial works minister for four years. He went to Ottawa as Works Minister in 1922, undertaking to straighten out the accounts for reconstruction of the Parliament Buildings which were burned during World War L Also while Works Minister he opened Canada House In London In 1923 and was given the keys to the city. By this time he had given up active medical practice. He was one of the organizers of the Pensions Department and was Pensions Minister during the mid-twenties. His Interest in pensions never waned and in 1951 he served as co-chairman of the Parliamentary Committee which studied old age pensions. The other chairman was Jean Lesage, now Northern Affairs Minister. Senator King was appointed to the Senate in 1930 and was named Government leader there and minister without portfolio in 1942. He was speaker from 1945 to 1949.”
