Their wedded life has been blessed with 10 children, Malinda Jane, Austin H, Mary Clementine, Nelson L, Roselma F, Martha E, Orleann T, Albert D, Francis and Edith L. Mr Firestone is not identified with any religious denomination, but throughout his life, has proven himself a man if unreproachable morality. His political views are in accord with the principles of the Democratic party but he does not take an active part in political life and has never sought political office. He is one whose social relations are exceptionally high and all who know him are drawn to him by a tie of friendship. None speak of him but with the warmest words of honor and respect. He is the possessor of 332 acres of land nearly all of which is in cultivation and h is fin e farm exhibits many evidences of his skilfull management. His industrious life has been rewarded with success and he has gained a rich competence in worldly goods. He was made a Mason in Pierceton Lodge No 377 in 1869 and has ever since been an active worker in his lodge but owing to the remoteness of his home from the place of meeting and his preoccupation with other business matters he has never served the Lodge in any official position.”
