settled on a farm seven miles south of Salem, the county seat of Washington
county, Ind. Besides cultivating his farm, he taught school, and in May, 18:5(i,
he received a license to preach from the Liberty (Disciple's) Church of Washing-
ton county. In the fall succeeding his death, his widow removed with her
children and her parents to Martinsville, Morgan county, Ind.

'"He and his wife were of the sturdy, hard-working ]K'ople who labored
to establish their home amid the forests of Indiana, and the principles of honor
and integrity of the parents were found e.xemplified in their children. The
father was laying broad and deep the foundation for the culture and develop-
ment of his family, but was called away to his eternal reward, leaving the mother
with the family of children to care for. This great sorrow came in 1839, just
at the time of the great panic, when many people were subjected to bitter
poverty. The mother's executive ability, with the cheerful assistance of the
children, tided them over the diflicult shoals, and launched them out on the sea
of life to succe-ss and prosperity."
