He and three children came to Oklahoma and settled near Weatherford early in 1901. In 1902 he filed on a homestead six miles northwest of old Rankin, where he farmed until 1919.
Since that time he has lived among his children, making his home with his oldest granddaughter, Mrs. Jim Clay, of Reydon for six years.
He was a very kind man and a friend to all who knew him, and was so patient in his suffering the last few years, never complaining about his pain and trouble.
He leaves to mourn his passing one sister, Mary Provines of Auburn, Indiana; four children, Mrs. Estella Schneider of Custer City, Oklahoma; Mrs. Beta Rosenberry of Butler, Indiana; Jas. W. Provines of Weatherford, Oklahoma; and Mrs. Gertrude Perry of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; eighteen grandchildren; twenty four great grandchildren; and numerous friends.
The remains were shipped to Indiana for burial.
