He was married to Elizabeth Ann WRIGHT of Long Island, and Lizzie (Elizabeth) LOWERRE of New York. He lived a number years at the end of the century in Woodcliff Lake, Bergen County, New Jersey and was the mayor there at one time, and later became a Justice of the Peace. He likely died some time after 1905 or so, as far as I can tell at this time.
I will appreciate any help with this most interesting man and his family members, or even descendants. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
