    Notes 
    • "He was isolated from his relatives by the death of his mother, and fared exceedingly hard. When as a boy he walked and led an ox from Illinois to Philadelphia for a drover, who failed there and left the boy without a cent of money, to work his way back as best he could. He apprenticed himself and learned the trade of a carpenter in Springfield. After spending twelve years without knowing wher a single relative was, he accidentally met his brother John, and after a long interview, became satisfied that they were brothers, and for the first time learned that his father was dead. From the business of a carpenter he went to dealing in drugs and medicines, and then studied medicine. For the last twelve years he has been engaged in practicing his profession." [1]
