He came west and settled at Red Oak, Iowa, where he was married to Miss Annie Epperson, and to their union were born seven children, two having with their mother preceded him to the Great Beyond. His death is mourned by a large circle of warm friends, and the community has lost one of its most upright and exemplary citizens.
