    Notes 
    • Main support of his family at sixteen. He loved to read and you would think he had a fine education. Had a fine baritone voice and was trained to sing tenor or bass at the time required. He was a carpenter by trade and a steam engineer, owning the first steam engine in his part of the country. He was very strong and agile and could hold his place in a group of men having fun or trying feats. He was fair with blue eyes like most of the Switzers.
