I didn't find death info for James. I'd contact the Denton County HIstorical Commission, http://dentoncounty.com/dept/main.asp?Dept=112&Link=640 .
Another source is the Emily Fowler Central Library, http://www.cityofdenton.com/pages/libraryspecialcollections.cfm .

I didn't find a Pinkney Copeland who lived or died in Denton 1919-1920. Successful Searching!
