of Jefferson Lodge 368 of Opdyke, and a member of M.W.A. Camp 7139 of Ina.

Tuesday evening, April 24, he told his father that he had arranged all his business 
and other affairs and was ready to do all in his power in the effort to be restored 
to health, but expressed the belief he would never be able to stand the ordeal, but 
was willing to try whatever seemed  for the best..  His great love for his little 
daughter was very strong, and he told his wife if he should die to tenderly care 
for her.
