He followed the business of tailor for many years, coming to Eau Claire in 1871 as cutter in the tailoring department of the general store of G. A. Buffington & Co., on Water street, and was in their employ a number of years, afterward entering the same business on his own account. He is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church and one of the oldest members of the order of Free and Accepted Masons in the state.

On September 22, 1856, he married Helen L. Hurlbutt at Allegany, N. Y., she being also born at Gilbertsville, N. Y., August 14, 1832. She is also a member of the Methodist church.

They have two sons living, Thomas L. and Fred H., both prominent druggists of Eau Claire. In co-partnership with their mother under the corporate name of The Gadsby Company, two drug stores are conducted in this city by the two brothers.
