After the death of his first wife, Mary Ann, he moved to Jackson, Madison county TN and bought land. This land is said to have been on or very close to what is now McKellar-Sipes Airport. He lived also in Carrollton, Carroll county MS briefly with his second wife Banena Ferguson but moved back to Hardeman county due to boll weevil infestations in cotton crop.
According to his WWI draft card his middle name was actually Leondas which is an alternate spelling of Leonidas, the Greek king of Thermopylae fame.
