His wife was Mary Fairweather. There's a tree that says she died in Wauconda.
Said to have had a daughter, Lydia, also 2 other daughters and 2 sons. Mary and one son, Leaman, were his survivors along with one brother, George W. and several grandchildren.

I'm putting this record here temporarily because this man owned a lot in Volo but is not listed in those inscriptions as buried in that lot or there is no headstone. I have not been there to check. I'm not certain but may have an obit for him.
