He attended strictly to business during business hours, but was very devoted to his family and home. had he lived until the 28th of August, he and his wife would have celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their marriage. He was one of a family of ten children, and the two who survive him, Mrs. S Lehman and Mrs. A. B. Gilbert, were present at the funeral as was the four of the family of eight children of which he was the father.
