The father was born June 24, 1814, and followed farming in his native land until 1857, when he immigrated to America and located in Seneca county, New York, where he farmed fourteen years. In 1871, he removed to Calhoun county, Michigan, and was successfully engaged in farming there until his death, October 6, 1876. His wife was born January 1, 1814, and is now deceased. They were the parents of eight children: Ann, born September 5, 1836, died April 12, 1912, at Waterloo, N.
