When he was 14 years old he started his lifetime work as a coal miner.He also used to cut hoop poles for making barrels, dug ore at old Lincoln Furnace, and worked in a lime quarry. He was a miner for 48 years, working for Tom Clutts and Harry Browne in their mine.He also worked for Carl Goddard and John Ervin in their lime quarries, was boss of Ervin's quarry for a while, but quit because he did not like too much responsibility.
