He was born in Carlisle, Pa., June 18, 1 795, and came to Greene County, O., with his parents when quite young. After marriage he lived on his father's farm several years and then bought one on the North side of Massie's creek about two miles north-west of Cedarville and near the Xenia pike. In September, 1853, they moved into Xenia. He was a strong Seceder, very earnest in ecclesiastical affairs as may be seen by reference to the published proceedings of the Associate synod. He was a correspondent for local newspapers. He was a delegate to the first convention that gave birth to the Republican party, 1856, in Pittsburgh. When young he desired to become a minister, but lack of means prevented him. He was a worker in all that was good. He died a very triumphant death in May 15, 1860. His Sabbath School class were his pall bearers. His wife, Anna, survived him till August 4, 1877. She was of gentle and loving disposition. For a number of years she was a great sufferer from rheumatism, but with it she was loth to complain or to make herself a burden to others. Her door was always open to her relatives and friends and the poor found her a kind helper.
