  • Notes 
    • He was a farmer, and was remembered as being frugal, but not tight, and as a stern man. He believed in being a good provider, and in the value of owning real estate. His children would onlybe allowed to go to school when there was no work on the farm. He never had electricity or indoor running water, though he eventually did get gas lighting.

      It was common for men to come to the farm looking for a place to sleep for the night, or for some work. He would not refuse a man sleeping quarters in the barn, but would only hire men withnarrow hips (apparently, he believed they would not be lazy and would work hard).
