I have very little information on him. He was born in England (I am not sure where) Sept. 2, 1828 and came to the US about 1848 settling in Indiana first then appearing in Marquette Co. around 1861 and Columbia Co. around 1875.
He married Elizabeth Westlake in Marquette Co. Wisconsin on April 1, 1861. They had two sons, Charles Henry (1862)and William Sumner (1868). He died in Poynette, Wisconsin on Aug. 1, 1916.
His parents were listed as James and Mary Jillings on his marriage record.
