He was a member of numerous organizations including, director of the Montgomery County Co-op, Montgomery County Horseman's Association, Peacher's Mill Land and Cattle Company, Montgomery County Cattleman's Association, Montgomery County Historical Society, Sons of the American Revolution, General Society War of 1812, Sons of Spanish American War and The Society of the Cincinnati.
