Notes:    His father died when he was 2 years old. He went to live with Stephen Adams. The wife of Stephen Adams name was Betsy Weaver. Maybe a cousin? According to reference # 1, in 1861 he went to Buffalo, NY. and then to Franklin, PA. where he set up a business for 13 years. He moved to South Dayton in the spring of 1875, purchased a lot, erected a building, and opened a grocery, flour and feed store. Some newly discovered information on a Dayton history page disputes some of this. He was appointed postmaster 16 Oct.1897.
