His parents and their children immigrated to Canada when he was 17 years old, settling in Madock, Ontario. Before going to Canada he worked on farms. After working as a section hand in Canada for a year, he came with his parents and the other members of the family to Greenwood. During the next 15 years he followed farming in summer time and logging work in Wisconsin during the winters; except for one season when he worked in the woods in the state of Washington. He then farmed in the town of Loyal, Clark County, for 15 years, and then locating on a farm in the village of Loyal for 12 years. The farm was acquired in trade for a larger farm in the town of Loyal. In another trade he acquired residence property in the city and moved here five years ago.
