He was one of the organizers and builders of the Baptist church of his community, was elected a trustee of this institution, and served in this office up to the time of his death. He took an unusually active interest in all matters relating to the education of the growing generation, and served as a trustee of the Hopewell school for many years, he having removed his place of residence to that town.
