He was an early and earnest advocate of free schools, and for many years a devoted officer and worker in the church and Sabbath-School of the Methodist Episcopal communion. He united with the church about 1840.

"Mrs. Eliza (Humphrey) Hall was a lady of great firmness of character and kindness of heart. She was exceedingly retiring in her disposition,--pure and peaceable as the dove. The suffering and needy had in her a reliable friend. No case of worthy charity ever left her door without a substantial blessing from her hand. She was greatly devoted to religious principles, and early taught and impressed her children with the beauty of the Christian's faith. They all now, with the Christian's hope, 'rise up and call her blessed.'" 3 Virginia McCormick gives the date of death as 14 August 1873.4

Mr. and Mrs. Wilson have always and everywhere been known as earnest and active friends of temperance, education, and every interest of the best Christian civilization. They have been for many years worthy members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, the power and influence of which communion in the State of Iowa owes not a little to their fidelity and devotion. The completion of the year 1883 will bring them to the fiftieth anniversary of their marriage, with their entire family of eight children arrived at maturity, and honoring by their character, culture, and influence, their parents' exalted example and standards of worth; --the use of either spirituous drinks or tobacco being unknown in the family, and all being in the membership of the Methodist Episcopal Church. --Frederick Humphreys.
