James A. Mansfield is buried at Evergreen Cemetery in Tuscaloosa. His wife Clemedine "Dena" Mansfield (Davis) moved to CA and shows up in the 1920 census. They had no children and she did not remarry. Even though her name was engraved in the headstone at Evergreen, she passed away in California and is buried in CA.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 99th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

Officer Mansfield,
On today, the 97th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Tuscaloosa. It sickens that your murderer got away with killing you and then killed another police officer.

What a tragic set of events. It sounds as if juries in 1912 were no better than what we have today nearly 100yrs later.

We pause to honor the memory of Officer Mansfield. Our thoughts and prayers go out to any and all of his surviving family members.

May God comfort and keep each of you. Please help keep your grandfather's memory alive by telling his story to your children and grandchildren.
