He was born on March 23, 1776 on Dan River Virginia. At an early age with his father he emigrated to Greenville District, South Carolina. Was on the 23rd day of May 1799 married to Judge Evans daughter Sally, and with her emigrated to Hall County, Georgia. He was one of the first settlers of said county. He served a campaign of Captain in the War of 1812. For many years he represented Hall County in the Senate. In 1839 he removed to Cherokee County, Georgia where he resided until his death. For several years he was severly afflicted with pain rendering him entirely helpless which he bore with Christian fortitude and thus he died.
Sleep aged father from all thy earthly toil and suffering. Though thou didst not make an open profession of religion yet we feel to thank God that thou did give us some evidence of thy acceptance with God. Whereby we hope one day to meet in Heaven.
