He began working out, on a farm, at age twelve, and continued that occupation most of the time through 1941, except for some years spent in cheese-making at Pillar Point and at South Amboy. He managed, meanwhile, to master the technique of the violin, and was an expert with the harmonica. In his possession was the old black walnut fiddle which George Lee, his great-grandfather, brought in 1817 from Albany County to the pioneer home in Hounsfield. He was active locally in the Masonic Order and was once considered the finest dancer in or about Dexter. In 1941 he worked on the Harry Williams farm, at Sherwin's Bay, Pillar Point, N.Y. No issue.
