As a child he moved with his father's family to the state of Iowa where he resided till he reached maturity and then as a young man he came to Kansas in 1874 where he continued to reside until the summons came for him. In the year 1884, August 9, he was married to Elmyra Cunningham and a family of five children was born to them. Two of the children died in early life. Three children and his wife beside three grandchildren remain to mourn his departure. In 1893 he was converted and united with the Ada Methodist church to which he remained a faithful member.
