Daughter Effie wrote:
'My father was talented in music and writing of poetry. He thoroughly enjoyed reading and had a fine knowledge of the Bible. He was a lover of horses and owned one particular mare for a period of twenty years. This mare was named 'Pat' and each of the eleven children learned to ride this horse. My father was a man of temperament but of lovable character with a kind and affectionate nature. His health, like my mother's was always excellent until a short time before his death in the year 1922."
