His brick bungalow residence for many years was 2516 29th Place West, Birmingham, Alabama. He also had a board & batten cabin, painted pink, in the town of Calera, Al. That's where he met the Widow Frost and married her years later after his wife Autie Mae died. Her house was built around an original log cabin.
