it's probably a good idea to give a few more details on James, e.g. where in Co. Sligo was he baptized, his parents names, do you know where his family lived, are you descended from him - i.e. do you know who he married, or if he married ?

If he married young, then there's this possibility for his marriage in 1877 :

  Name: James Devins
  Registration District: Sligo
  Event Type:  Marriage
  Year: 1877
  Volume:    17 / Page: 311

  see : https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FY7H-2TT

About 160 Co. Sligo born Devins listed in the 1901 census, but no James of the right sort of age...
