He settled in the town of Belmont, Franklin Co., in the year 1829, first taking up two hundred acres of land in that then wild region, and subsequently adding to it, being among the first settlers of the town. He was a man of considerable prominence, a member of the Whig party, and filled various public offices, among which were those of justice of the peace and supervisor. He died about 1870, nearly eighty-four years of age. (History of Clinton and Franklin counties, New York, by Duane Hamilton Hurd, 1880)
