His father was married twice, and by the two marriages had fifteen children. After his arrival at Hesper, he worked, and here he met Miss Emily Harkness, whom he married August 24, 1870. They started life's journey together at Hesper and later moved to Fillmore county. To this union were born three children: Frank, Lida Carpenter, both deceased and Elmer who lives at Mabel.
