Early in his childhood, a special trouble developed, causing for nearly three years, complete paralysis, only to encounter a large growth on his side, followed by on one his neck. The doctors said the only chance was a surgical operation, which he was not able to undergo. In school he was a bright lad. He made many friends. Being a cripple his parents tried to dissuade him from going to the city to follow his trade, but determined to make his own way of life, he pushed out for six years, worked with the best jewelers in Cincinnati, after which proficient as an artizan (sic), he set up a jewelry store and manufacturing plant on Pike Street in Covington, Ky., where he built up a fine trade.
