He studied for the ministry and preached as a local minister. In 1840 he was admitted to the Conference on probation, and two years afterward to full membership, and was ordained elder of the Methodist Episcopal Church in the Louisville Conference. He was subject to appointment by the Conference for fifty years, but now is superannuated; was recently appointed chaplain of the penitentiary at Eddyville, to which place he moved in 1880, and three years later to Kuttawa.
