James Mye (ca. 1823 – ca. 1890) was a descendant of Africans who escaped slavery in the British colonies and found refuge in Native American communities. He was of Mashpee and African descent. Mye was an indentured servant to the Hall brothers beginning at age 11. However, in a 1804 legal case that became an important precedent in subsequent cases concerning child labor, the court determined that his servitude was akin to slavery and not legal. This daguerrotype of Mye was taken circa 1840 in Cape Cod.
