Additional Information:
"About the year 1860 he began the study of law, which he continued until a disastrous fire caused a change in his life plans, destroying his books and bringing financial reverses, which made it impossible for him to resume his studies. Being thus turned aside from his natural inclinations, he took up a mechanical line of work, and for many ensuing years engaged in the woolen mill and saw mill business."
