He erected a log cabin, which is still standing, farmed and raised cattle. In 1887, the end of the frontier days was heralded by the arrival of the Sanford and St. Petersburg line of the Orange Belt Railroad and its little wood burning engine. With the railroad, came more settlers and during that same year this section of Lake County was created from part of Sumter County."
