From 1911 to June 1, 1918 he was in charge of similar work for the McCas key Register Company, at Alliance O and from the last date to the time of his death he held a responsible position with the General Electric Company at Schenectady NY.

He was always very highly respected both by his employers and in the communities where he lived and he was regarded as a progressive and useful citizen. When the war broke out he was appointed a four minute speaker in aid of the Liberty Loans and other war enterprises and did excellent work. He was a member of Conrad Lodge No 271 AF & AM Alliance. On Sept 15 1907 he married Louise G Pineo of Calais, Me and is survived by her and three children; Stephen aged nine, Ann aged seven, and David aged five. [The Harvard Graduate]
