At one time he is said to have been attached to George Washington's staff,

chusetts), as a bounty. In 1818, when a resident of Berkshire, Vt., he applied

shire County, Mass., in 1782, and sold it in 1783. He settled first in Clarendon,

24, 1801, having bought of Ebenezer Marvin lot number four, and June 26, lot
number six from Thomas Byrd. He was at that time still a resident of Clarendon.
In Berkshire he kept for several years a tavern, which was the quiet and safe
retreat of the traveller. He also owned a productive farm and his family grew up
to be substantial and useful members of the community. He was very fond of
horses and always owned some of the best. He seems to have been something
of a pioneer in Berkshire, as he was the first tavern-keeper, and drove the first
pair of horses and first double wagon ever used in town. He and his wife were
members of the Baptist Church. He had a light complexion, and blue eyes.
