He was married in Augusta, Columbus Co., GA to Frances A. Burton, 23 October 1862 and is survived by his wife and three daughters -- Mrs. M. F. Auten, Mrs. Etta Hampton, and Miss Lilly Few, all of Atlanta. Another daughter, Mrs. Nora Overby, and two sons, Henry and Frank, are dead. He also leaves three sisters -- Mrs. Dick Orr, of this county, Mrs. Fannie Goodman, of Atlanta, and Mrs. Mary Dodge, of Iowa. He had but one brother, Mr. Lucius Few, of this county, who died several years ago. 

He never united with any church. He was a veteran of the Civil War, and an upright and highly esteemed man.
