He then became a Pony Express rider for the Central Overland California and Pikes Peak Express Company, which was discontinued in 1861. He also served as a spy in General Albert Sidney Johnston's Army of Utah. He was a lumber contractor by 1870, living in Cottonwood. In 1880 he and his family were living in Fremont, Utah, where he was a farmer. They moved to Thurber by 1900, and Lyman, Utah, by 1910.
