He was for several years clerk of a steamboat on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. In 1870, he became connected with the firm of Ingram & Kennedy, serving as bookkeeper for a year, then taking charge of office work for eight years, and afterward attending to their Mississippi River lumber interests until the organization of the Empire Lumber Co., since which time he has been assistant secretary of that organization. He was secretary and treasurer of the Charles Horton Lumber Co., Winona, Minn., for one year, and Town Clerk of Eau Claire for one term. He was married in La Crosse, March 4, 1869, to Alice E.
