In 1860, he was a farmer living in Springfield Township, Huntingdon County, but is in that census as "Abram," and all three children then living are listed with either partial or incorrect names, including daughter Juniata who is listed as son Jonathan.

A Civil War veteran, he enlisted in Harrisburg August 29, 1864, mustered into federal service there September 2 as a private with Co. K, 202nd Pennsylvania Infantry, and honorably discharged with his company August 3, 1865.
