His house still resides at 1784 Penfield Road. Penfield is a suburb of Rochester, New York.

Penfield is surrounded in all four directions by neighboring towns.

Athletic Fields Abraham Lincoln Park Channing H Philbrick Park Ellison Park Greenwood Park Harris Whalen Park Heritage Park Lasalle's Landing Park Lucien Morin Park Rothfuss Park Schaufelberger Park Sherwood Fields Park Veteran's Memorial Park Nearly two million years ago, Penfield's topography was formed by melting glaciers. The same forces that created the Finger Lakes helped develop interesting terrain in and around Ellison Park. These glacial ice melt carvings left fertile lands which today is used in farming (and from the late 20th century to the present, housing developments). The soil is rich for farming certain types of apples, cherries, plums, peaches, and pears.
