He married Mary E. Howell, 16 Oct. 1887, in Hardin Co. TN.
In 1900 census, he and Mary had a son, Cecil E., 1 yr old, living at McCloud. He was an ordained Free Will Baptist preacher, but research needed to obtain the date he was ordain. His name is on old church records as having preached several years before statehood in 1907. He was a prominent preacher and able debater in the central part of Oklahoma, and western Arkansas. He was an acceptable orator, and a great preacher. Many were converted under his ministry, and it is unknown just how many churches he organized, but he did a good work. He was editor of a church paper, The Pruning Hook, for a few years and was always putting forth the gospel.
He and his wife Mary's children were: Cecil E., Inez M., Clara G., Fay, Charlie, and Loraine.
