We have information that his Aunt Susan TODD played a major role in his upbringing and education. The 1889 diary of JOF refers frequently to his Aunt Susan and HOSTETTER family. In latter years he received a patent for a recording or phonographic device and received royalties until his death in 1916. His diary claims work in Photography, Alarm devices, Telephones, and other electrical devices. Family recollection includes work in Photography, News reporting, etc. The 1900 city directory for Pittsburgh PA. has him living in Manchester section of Allegheny City and working as an electrician.
