Birth: Sep. 5, 1799
Death: 1859


He was born in Topsham, ME, Sept. 5, 1799, and died Aug. 15, 1859. In 1819, with Rev. Samuel Hathorn and another, he purchased a tract of land and commenced clearing it. Feeling a call to the ministry in January 1821, he went into the Sandy river country and began holding meetings, and the next year he was ordained by the Gorham Quarterly Meeting (Q.M.) at Danville, and had a useful itinerant ministry of eighteen or twenty years.

On May 17 1829, he married Miss Huldah Freeman. He accepted a call to Brunswick, and a revival at once beginning over one hundred were baptized. Some four years later, in a protracted meeting of twenty-one days, assisted by Rev. Clement Phinney, he saw another revival in which a hundred were baptized, mostly among the young.
In 1841 he became pastor of the church at Topsham, and after two or three years returned to his itinerant ministry. He journeyed preaching through southern New England.
Some six years before his death, finding his health failing, he purchased land in Brunswick and made for himself a comfortable home. He preached his last sermon at North Freeport, near by.
