He was married to Miss Mary Martin, a native of this county, by whom he had eight children: Robert, Sarah, Martin, Henriette Josephine, John, Thomas and Ida. During the late rebellion Robert and Martin were in the army, the latter dying in the hospital at Washington. Thomas, who is a farmer, was born April 11, 1854, and is living at home with his mother.
