He married Rachael Personious of the town of Caroline, and they had eight children, our subject being the second, and now sixty three years old.

They are the parents of five children, all at home but one. All were educated in the common schools except one, who graduated from the Ithaca High School, viz., Charles. In politics our subject is a Democrat.
