"...He was ordained a Free Will Baptist minister on Nov. 6, 1794 by Rev. Benjamin Randall, and others.
In 1799 he became clerk of the
Edgecomb Q. M. In 1808 he had an
extensive reformation at Standish, in
which Joseph White was converted,
and soon became an efficient minister.
He preached three times at the Y. M. at
Edgecomb in September, 1811. He was
followed by Buzzell and Colby. March 18,
1812, he wrote to the Religous Magazine
of an agreeable journey he had had
among the churches of the Sandy River
country. He made the ordaining prayer,
while Joseph White preached the sermon,
at the ordination of Clement Phinney at
Standish Neck in 1816. In 1834 he
added forty-six to his church by baptism
and the next year twenty-nine. He died
