About 1860, he moved to the Waterloo Q.M., IA, and was connected with the Oxley Grove, Pleasant Valley, Spring Creek and Waterloo churches. He was in the organization and the first pastor of the Waterloo Freewill Baptist church, which was organized with twelve members. The church grew but in 1896, all 49 members joined the regular Baptist church, just before the Freewill Baptist denomination was merged with the American Baptist.
