He was noted for his silence; for he scarcely ever spoke unless asked a question and then gave a short laconic answer. A friend told this anecdote: He called to see him and stayed all night.

He was benevolent, for he took care of his father-in-law in his old age and provided for his comfort. He lived and died in the same house that he built at his first settlement, a long log house boarded with plank but not painted.
