In the year 1859 he was united in marriage to Lydia Rich, who still survives him. Of this union were born eight children, six of whom are living. In 1883, he united with the Friends' Church at Harveysburg, and remained a faithful member until his death which occurred April 6, 1901, in the seventy-fourth year of his age. He was a kind husband and father, a good brother and neighbor. Though unpretentious in outward forms and ceremonies, he sincerely exemloified the virtues of kindness, charity, and brotherly love toward all. No wayfarer or homeless person but fund a warm welcome at his fireside and at his table. His nature was largely social and hospitable and he gladly welcomed friends and relatives to visit his household. His llong life and retentive memory made his mind a perfect magazine of anecdote and reminiscence. Few knew the history of men and places better han did he. His mind held a deeper sense of the power and magnitude of the Great Unseen than many who knew him ever supposed. In the daily round of duties, he no doubt often pondered on the great mysteries of Being, and he found pleasure in obsrving the ever changing beauties.
