He was sixty years old and is survived by his wife and four children. He was born in McMinn county, Tennessee in 1850, coming to this county with his parents in 1857 and settled on Pea Ridge where he grew to manhood, attended school, studied law and taught school from time to time and later entered the law office of Judge J.D.
