From the book Axtell genealogy

He was a generous man, a clear thinker with a judicial mind, and he was regarded as an authority in all practical matters. During his whole life he was a leading man in his immediate section of the country. He was a strict Baptist with the most rigid principles, a deacon during all his later life. He had a tall, powerful frame, an excellent specimen of the best Puritan type.
