He subsequently obtained employment in the Z.C.M.L shoe factory. He was well known in Utah, and was for years a familiar figure at the "Old Folks" gatherings. He was genial in his disposition, which quaility, together with other admirable traits won him the esteem and friendship of hosts of people.
