When he was eight years of age he came with his widowed mother, four sisters and three brothers to Williams County where they settled on a wooded farm, three miles east and one mile south of Edon. At the age of 16 when the Civil war had broken out he enlisted with Company H, the third Ohio Cavalry where he served two years and six months, with the Union Army with which he endured the hardships of camp life and danger on the battlefields. After the war he came home to the family and in the year 1874 he married his wartime sweetheart, Miss Adaline Corbette. To this union were born two sons, Charles of Montpelier and Adam of Pioneer. In 1880 he moved with his family to a farm which he had bought just west of Pioneer where he lived a very progressive and successful life. He was a man of sturdy character ever mindful of the welfare of others and always ready to aid in time of need.
