"He was born April 17, 1803 in Columbiana County, Ohio and moved to Greene County, Indiana in December 1861 where he resided until his death. For nearly two years he had been afflicted with dropsy but confined to his bed for only a short time before he died.

On May 23, 1831 he was married to Matilda B. FOULKES with whom he lived very happily until her death on August 25, 1852. There were born to them ten children, five of whom are living.

He was converted and joined the O. S. Presbyterian Church in 1849. He was strongly attached to the church of his choice and was a constant reader of the Bible. In his home, many a weary traveler found an asylum. During his sickness he manifested great faith and patience and had bright manifestations of his Saviors’ presence.

In August 1854 he was married to Mrs. Elizabeth MCCOY. There were born to them six children. The widow and four of their children still survive.

The funeral services were held at Simpson Chapel conducted by the Rev. BROWN pastor of the M. E. Church." Image.
