How come James Boswell Jr died in the same year as his brother, Alexander (killed in a duel)? Sounds too much of a coincidence.

From Wikipedia:

James Boswell (1778-1822) died suddenly at his chambers in the Temple, unmarried and apparently in embarrassed circumstances, on 24 February 1822, a few weeks before the death, in a duel, of his brother Sir Alexander, who in a poetical tribute to his memory said of him that he had "never lost one friend or found one foe"
