On March 20, 1873 he was united in marriage to Miss Mary Catherine Story. To this union seven children were born: James W. lives at West Baden; Martha A., French Lick; Charles M., French Lick; Rosie B., Cincinnati, Ohio; and Mary F., Alice L. and Everett L. preceded.
In February 1892 he was converted and became one of the charter members of the Highland M. E. Church.
He was a loving husband and companion, a good kind father always working hard to provide well, a friend and neighbor. Yes, a good man had been taken from us a great loss. But may we say from the heart, not my will, but thy will be done and remember our loss is His gain.
He leaves to mourn his death his wife, Mrs. Harris Cornwell, four children, nine grandchildren and five great-great grandchildren and a number of other relatives and friends.


We wish to thank the neighbors and friends for their kindness and sympathy during the illness and death of our beloved husband and father, the undertaker, W. V. Ritter, for the floral offerings and Rev. Eskridge, Rev. Atkinson and Rev. Barnes. Mrs. Harris Cornwell and Children.
