His family moved to the Pleasant Hill neighborhood in Warren County and he resided there the rest of his life.

On January 30, 1907, he married Frances Barbara Hommer in a double wedding ceremony with his cousin, Will Church and bride, Ethel Downey, in the Vince Downey home. They were members of the Pleasant Hill Church and he was a trustee for a number of years. He was also a director of Davis school for many years.

He died on June 14, 1970, in Warren County, Iowa.
