In 1850, they moved to thistownship, to his present farm where he had bought 160 acres. At thistime he owned 24 acres in Iowa; this he soon sold and began increasinghis homestead. More land became a necessity to him, as he had alreadyengaged in stock raising. he was very successful with hogs, from theproceeds of which he bought the most of his land. he now owns 560acres where he lives and 200 acres in Wayne Township, MontgomeryCounty the whole valued at $38, 000. It is in a high state ofcultivation, and on the homestead there have been put down 7 or 8miles of drain time. He has given, besides 80 acres to his marrieddaughter.

Abouttwelve years ago he brought the first short horns to "Fountain StockFarm" (the name his home bears); these were bought in Kentucky. Hehas made two later purchases in that state and has also added threesuperb animals to his herd from Illinois. He now has 65 head of finethoroughbreds and has no lack of purchasers far and near. He hasadvertised a public sale of shorthorns for next August. Hiscelebrated show cow, one of the finest in America, belongs to thePomona family, and took the sweepstakes prize at the Indiana statefair last year.

He has twice lost hisfish by hard winters, and the extent to which they have suffered thepresent severe and protracted cold season is not known. He hasascertained that it takes fish as long to complete growth as it doesneat cattle.
