He married Jessie Smith on Dec 25, 1901 in Hermon Il.
He was the father of Harry Smith and Orpha Heselden. After Orpha's death in 1939, he and his wife raised their granddaughter, Florence Marie Heselden. Florence was 2 years old at the time of her mother's death. Her father died six weeks before her birth.
Otis worked as a farm-hand until his retirement, and then was a custiodian at the Methodist Church in Oneida, Il. He also had a large garden and sold fruit and produce around town. He and his wife didn't have much, but they never turned a hungry person away from their door without at least a sandwich.
