Uncle Poet never married but was dearly loved by many nieces and nephews who said he was an adorable, kind man with a keen intellect and interest in all men. In 1898, when he was 51 he was appointed postmaster of Paris, Missouri.
He had eight brothers and one sister, Mary Virginia, who married Howard Pet Jennings. She was the only sibling to survive him. For most of his life, he was a farmer.
His tombstone has been broken off, but the base is in place.
