vation, Hour being eighty-four dollars per one hundred pounds, and no
way to obtain any supplies except by foot carriage thro the deep snow.

He returned home after two years' absence, with two thousand
dollars, with which he purchased a house in Montpelier, Vt. In
1858 he moved to Elyria, O., and started a sash and blind mill ; was
burnt out in 1859, losing all again. Rebuilt by the aid of the citi-
zens and ran it a year, when he moved to Sullivan, O., to manufac-
ture shingles.

When the rebellion broke out he recruited a number of men, and
enlisted in the 2d Ohio cavalry drilled in Camp Chase, Columbus,
O. ; did scout duty in Platte City, Mo. ; organized an Indian regi-
ment near Fort Smith in the Indian Ter. In 1863 was attached to
Burnside's command in Kentucky ; detailed to follow the rebel Mor-
gan on his raid into Ohio, and captured him. The hard marches
and field duty were too much for his health, and he broke down.
After recovery was detailed to repair bridges and mills which the reb-
els had destroyed, thus using his mechanical skill to good advantage
for the government. His term of service expired in the fall of 1864,
and broken in health he settled his family in Oberlin, O., and en-
gaged in the manufacture of shingles till his health gave way entirely.

In 1883 he secured three hundred and sixty acres of government
land in Dakota under the homestead and preemption law, and in
1888 returned to Oberlin, where he still lives, tho a confirmed par-
alytic, the result of his hard experiences in the army. His wife has
proved herself a true helpmeet, enduring the hardships and long sep-
arations from him with faithfulness and fortitude, caring well for her
household. He attributes whatever of success in life, as well as the
character and manhood he possesses to her faithful devotion, exem-
plary conduct, and steady and persistent piety. Both members of
the Episcopal church.
