	Mrs. Emma Crow, of Pittsfield, has written of him as follows:
	He was in turn a wagon-maker,farmer and merchant.  He was one
	of the grand characters among the pioneers of the county and
	the church.  Of the strictest integrity, sturdiest manhood
	and unwavering faith, he was a man whose faith and opinions
	commanded the respect of his fellow-men.  His genial and
	whole-souled nature made him a host of friends, and his
	enthusiasm in the cause of Christianity made his house
	the home of the	ministry so that it was known as
	"the preachers' hotel."  It was said of	him that whatever
	the need, he stepped into the breach, whether it was to
	pray, to preach, to plead or to cry. Such was the character
	and spirit of the man who helped so much in laying
	the foundations of a purer gospel in Pike County.
