He was also for about 40 years a member of the Odd Fellows organization of this city, and from his brethren during his illness he received the kindest attention, for which his surviving friends feel very grateful.

He was a director in the Clarksburg Gas and Electric Light Companies and the Clarksburg TELEGRAM Co. and was very successful in his business enterprises.

Captain Shuttleworth was a man who never stooped to do little or mean acts, and in his relations with his neighbors and friends he was always fair and generous.

He had many friends and a very large acquaintance over the State.

His splendid judgement and his peculiar ability to analyze human nature marked him as a man of affairs and caused his suggestions to be highly prized by those who knew his discerning mind.
