He is an expert in all the departments of mechanical and operative dentistry. About 1850, he made a discovery of a cure for sore and inflamed eyes yes, but, being engrossed with his profession, he never brought it before the public until of late years; the almost miraculous cures which it has effected, place him among the leading oculists of the country; he has also discovered a remedy which he calls the "Healing Fluid," which acts as an antiseptic, preventing inflammation, and cures all sores, either recent or chronic. Its efficacy is attested by the unanimous testimony of those whom he has cured. On June 17, 1849, he was united in marriage with Miss Maria B. Crockett, of Seneca Co.. Ohio and two sons and a daughter are the fruit of this union, all of whom are living. Charles A., Anne, wife of F. L. Ingman, merchant at Villisca. Iowa, and Cassius M..
