He attended school and worked on his father's farm until he was fourteen years old, when in consequence of a kick from a horse, he was confined to the house nearly three years. After recovery, he gave attention to raising stock, and when twenty-four years of age had saved $1,000, and received from his father 100 acres. On February 5, 1865, he married LIVONIA DENMAN, daughter of LUDLOW and ANNA DENMAN, of Morrow County, Ohio; by this union they had two children - HORTENSE and ABNER. MRS.
