While in Illinois he was ever restless, moving from county to county, and in the northern part of the state learned the trade of a cooper. He was married at an early age to Miss Abigail E. Beckwith, but at his home in Marshall county his wife and children suffered greatly from malarial sickness, his two oldest children dying. Those were also hard “Democratic times” as Mr. Stout expressed it; and for a poor man it was very difficult to advance.
