Per his brother: My brother Milo, distinguished himself, when a boy, by an encounter with a robber, in which, having a large amount of mission funds, which he was bringing from the bank, he boldly defied the robber, & to the surprise of all who heard the circumstances, came off victorious. For some time he superintended a mission station, became a physician, & was remarkably successful & greatly loved & respected in that profession. During the late rebellion he suffered himself twice to be robbed of all he had, rather then succumb to its sway. He was a man of great courage, & firmness for the right, & once, before the war, single handedly, with his rifle kept a company of men at bay, till the leader tremblingly asked him to spare his life. He was remarkably generous & warn in his affections. Never did brother owe more to brother then I owe to him for his kind & generous sympathies. The last I heard, he was still living, & his letter breathed the same spirit of warm brotherly love.

Father of Dorothy (Dolly), Nancy, George, Esther, Hinman, Sarah, Lucy, Eliza, Milo & John.
