He donated $5000 to the Pickaway Township School for a school library, and $12,000 for a chapel at the Hitler Ludwig Cemetery, as well as $3000 for the upkeep of the cemetery. What was left of his estate went to the Pickaway Township Board of Education for the purchase of books and the upkeep of the library.[1]
