His parents removed to Watertown Center, which is about two miles south of the city, when he was but one year of age and where he has since resided. After finishing his schooling he was employed by his father, who was superintendent of Brookside cemetery, and remained with him until 1891, when he succeeded his father and has since had charge of the cemetery.
