Tobias was always his mother’s favorite. Unlike his older brothers, he was always a thoughtful and gentle boy. He was too young to join the war effort when the Rebellion broke out in 1861, but that was probably for the best for everyone involved. Tobias lacked both the physical strength and the unflappable confidence of a good soldier, though his sweetheart Bonnie went a long way remedying the latter during their courtship.
He became “the man of the house” and took his duties as seriously as a 9-year-old could. It didn’t take long to see he had a head for figures, and helped his Boston neighbors with bookkeeping and other odd jobs before eventually becoming an accountant. But around the age of 20, he started to feel the weight of a life unlived, and got the notion into his head to go out West and try to strike it rich in California.
