Since 1808 this strong man, who ran a 30 mile footrace, answered calls not only in the Pocahontas but in sections of the Webster, Randolph and Nicholas.  He wore out seven horses and fifteen automobiles.  Having delivered between five and six thousand babies, it was little wonder that during his sickness practically every family recalled that he had brought some of them into the world.  He reached his goal of  90 years with several months over, and died, as he wanted, a gentleman in command of the situation.
