His younger sons moved to Texas. He was witness for marriages and land transactions of his relatives & others, and involved in many different pursuits. The 1838 land tax listed him as the owner of 1,094 acres. His name is also listed on the first Grand Jury of Mercer county after its formation. In his father's land transfer to his brother Eli, his name is given as a Justice of the Peace.
