I have been told he was a honest and hardworking man. He was a farmer, a Justice of the Peace, served on the Bledsoe County Board of Education, and a upstanding citizen. Grandma Brown, his wife told me he was a fine Christian man, he belonged to the Church of God some 29 years. He served in World War I. He gave part of his vast farm to the oldest son, Harvey, the understanding that he stays and takes care of his mother. He departed this life on December 13, 1949 and is buried in Worthington Cemetery in Bledsoe County, Tennessee.
