  • Notes 
    • 'He came to Ohio in about 1835, locating in Blendon Township, but lived for a short time in Delaware County and in Mansfield.' 'The house was furnished, not quite elegantly, but very comfortably...As was much the
      vogue in those days, the dining room, kitchen and laundry were in the basement. The street door opened upon an ample hall and walnut winding staircase. The parlor has a rich Brussels carpet, tall pier glass, the piano, four steel engravings, 'The Voyage of Life', an oil of little Willie, frosted four globed chandelier. The windows has white inside shutters, white shades and lace curtains. There were Rogers groups under glass and interesting bric-a-brac.' In a sanatorium. He left sizeable estate. 'On a Sunday, shortly prior to his taking to Danville, New York Sanatorium, my father took Minnie, Carlos and myself down to see him. We left him late in the afternoon for our twelve mile drive home. That was the last time I saw him alive. I am sure he sensed the finality of our goodbyes. He, my grandmother and Uncle John lie side by side in GreenLawn. Grandfather had said that his gold watch, which he purchased many years before, be given to me as his namesake. His trustees turned it over to me at my fifteenth birthday. I have carried it ever since and have it with me now, as I write these lines.'
