Hunted, traded furs, worked in a molasses mill and coal mines as a young man. Became a U.S. citizen on Jan. 10, 1872. He established a trading store and his family lived over it. He did well and was later able to build a new store across the street from his brother, Stephen's. He expanded into general merchadise. He helped establish the Farmers and Merchants Bank and was a director. In 1910 he retired from the store business and began loans on first mortgages.
