In his younger days he was a watchman in a factory in Lawrence and saved his money and came back to Otisfield and bought the farm where he lived and died. He was a man of his word and did as he agreed. He remodeled his house and added a second story to it. He used to have a cider mill and ground apples with a horse hitched to a sweep.
