the Owl Creek valley. He learned the trade of a carpenter and was noted for
good workmanship. He was naturally good at mathematics and could easily
figure out any contracts that were let out to him in business. Hard problems in
arithmetic were sent from all sides to him to be solved, as he was considered a
prodigy in that line. He followed his business for many years, but finally bought
a small farm in IMt. Gilead, Ohio, and devoted his attention to farming the
remainder of his life. He served as treasurer of Morrow county, and had a
high reputation in the community. He was a good musician in his day and

a good natural gift of language and as a descriptive talker was second to none
in his neighborhood.
