He was married to Miss Louise Linskow, November 6, 1884. They continued to live on their farm until thirty years ago when they moved to Neillsville, which has been their home ever since.

He was a man of quiet tastes, industrious and honest and well liked by all who knew him. He is survived by his wife and one son Edward, who is married and lives on a farm near the city, and has three children.
