He had a large heart-he gave freely to his means. Was foremost in building churches and parsonages, one of the last benevolent acts of his life was to give liberally of his means to build one of the best brick parsonages in the Central Ohio Converence. His house had been a home for the weary itenerant for many years. His kind and Christian wife was by his side in hthis work of faith and labor of love. He leaves a widdow, 4 sons, 2 daughters to mourn their loss. His sickness was short-his end was peace. He rests from his labors and his works do follow him.
