Captain of the local military company to handle Indian alarms. He was noted as a

leading man amongst Eastern interests. In 1732, he was elected as the town
representative to the General Assembly & in 1734 was on a committee that selected three
'school dames' for Ashford. The committee agreed to pay three ladiesCincluding an Ann
Eaton) £4 to teach for three months.
