They had three children: Minnie, an invalid, who died at the age of 32, Robert married Miss Marion Henchman in 1942. They live near Glenwood, Indiana on their dairy farm and have one son Robert Benjamin (age 5 now). Ernest married Miss Elsie George, they have no children, and are living in North Hollywood and both teach school at Los Angeles area. Ed died in Liberty, Indiana, while his widow is still living in Connersville.
