He was engaged in the shoe business for a short period of time in early life. He was a school teacher near Trenton, and after this again opened a shoe store on Broad Street where Dr. Shepherd's old dwelling once stood.

About 1839 or 1840, he was elected Justice of the Peace, opened an office on State Street, and continued to hold office until his death.

At a special meeting of the Common Council, held in April 1841, he was elected City Treasurer. He was also elected to serve as Mayor of Trenton from 1849-1850.

In his youth, he converted and joined what was then Queene Street Methodist Church.
